North Korean authorities are considering the possibility of test of a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific ocean, said Friday the South Korean media, citing a statement by the foreign Minister of the DPRK ri Yong Ho.
“I think it could be a test of a hydrogen bomb of unprecedented power, perhaps in the Pacific ocean,” said North Korean foreign Minister, speaking to reporters in new York.
“It (decisions on such testing – if) depends on our leader, so I don’t know for sure,” added Lee Yong-Ho.
This statement was made in light of the exchange of threats between North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN and U.S. President Donald trump.
On Tuesday, trump speaking at the UN General Assembly, said he would “completely destroy” North Korea, if that country would pose a threat to America or its allies. In response, Kim Jong-UN on Friday issued a statement in which he promised to take “the most serious in the history of countermeasures” against the United States.
