North Korea's latest nuclear test was so powerful, it shrunk a mountain

Kim Jong-un inspects a nuclear warhead

"I do not agree that South Korea needs to develop our own nuclear weapons or relocate tactical nuclear weapons in the face of North Korea's nuclear threat", he told CNN Thursday in his first televised interview since North Korea's sixth nuclear test.

Pyongyang's Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, which handles the North's external ties and propaganda, also called for the break-up of the Security Council, which it called "a tool of evil" made up of "money-bribed" countries that move at the order of the US.

Japanese professional wrestler-turned-lawmaker Antonio Inoki, who has conducted sports diplomacy with North Korea since the 1990s, has urged Japan to do more to calm escalating tensions between the USA and North Korea.

North Korea would need fewer nuclear-tipped missiles to destroy a given target.

The commission could not confirm what kind of nuclear test the North conducted, he added.

India calls on Myanmar to act with restraint in Rakhine
Biren said: "The worldwide border with Myanmar is porous and all steps have been taken to check any attempt to sneak into Manipur".

The Nuclear Safety and Security Commission said Wednesday the discovery of xenon-133 isotope is linked to the North's bomb test conducted in its northeast on September 3.

Prior to the test, North Korean state media released images of the warhead it intends to mount on its new Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile.

"When we look at the political risk, we analyze whether it is likely to provoke a major wave regarding the oil price of or a shocking growth", the analyst has said. "If we respond to the situation with an attitude that we will counter a nuclear-armed North with a nuclear-armed South, peace can not be maintained between the two Koreas", Moon said. China and Russian Federation share the view that the Kim regime will not give up its nuclear programme without security guarantees. A variation of that warhead appears to have been used in the most recent test. Evidence suggests that this is a bomb meant for the destruction of an American city should a conflict occur.

U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis said Wednesday that he's become convinced that the United States must keep all three parts of its nuclear force, rather than eliminate one, as he once suggested.

The South Korean military said the air-to-surface Taurus missile was sacked from an F-15 fighter jet, then traveled through obstacles at low altitudes before precisely hitting a designated target over the sea off the country's western coast. But the data were not sufficient to determine what type of nuclear device the North had detonated, it said.
