NK nuclear test shows progress in increasing weapons yield: 38 North

NK nuclear test shows progress in increasing weapons yield: 38 North

"Japan is no longer needed to exist near us", the state-run Korean Central News Agency said on Thursday, citing a statement by the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee.

"The four islands of the archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche". "The summit partners were selected based on the need to seek their cooperation to counter the North's nuclear crisis, bilateral relations and effectiveness to promote the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics".

Those comments were mostly shrugged off by the United States because North Korea didn't have a missile that could hit the U.S. mainland.

"Regardless of whether this most recent test was an operational warhead for an ICBM or simply a device, the yield of the test clearly shows North Korean progress in increasing the yields of their nuclear weapons", the analysis said. He even said the U.S. should "be beaten to death as a stick is fit for a rabid dog".

Japan's top government spokesman has called a North Korean threat to sink Japan with a nuclear bomb extremely provocative and outrageous.

In response, the United Nations slapped even harsher sanctions on North Korea than it has in the past.

The 15-member Security Council voted unanimously in support of a US-drafted resolution condemning the missile test conducted by North Korea on September 3 and imposed measures that include a ban on its textile imports and restrictions on oil exports to the country.




The official said the move should not be perceived as breaking step with global efforts to build pressure on Pyongyang, but noted that the timing of the package would be based on "consideration of South-North relations as a whole".

Earlier this month, South Korea's defense minister suggested it was worth reviewing the redeployment of US tactical nuclear weapons on the peninsula in order to deter threats from the North, something conservative US Sen.

The EU is also lining up fresh sanctions of its own in addition to the United Nations measures - these could include a ban on the sale of luxury goods to the north or steps against the regime leadership, even Kim himself.

This yield is close to what 38 North previously estimated to be the maximum containable yield for the test site in Punggye-ri, northeastern North Korea, it added.

Pyongyang was expected to test an intercontinental ballistic rocket last Sunday as North Koreans celebrated the country's 69th anniversary of its founding, but the test did not happen.

Seoul apparently notified Tokyo, Washington and others of its deliberations.
