Kim Jong-Un is preparing to carry out a fresh nuclear test within days, it has been claimed.
North Korea said last year it had mastered the ability to mount a warhead on a ballistic missile amid fears Pyongyang wants to build rockets capable of reaching the US.
Pyongyang is now in the final stages of testing a nuclear weapon at Punggye-ri on the east coast ‘at any time’ once the dictator gives the green light, officials in the region have claimed.
The secretive nation has previously claimed to have carried out a hydrogen bomb test at the same site last January sparking fears it could be about to repeat H-bomb blast.
Hydrogen bombs are much more powerful, and much more difficult to make, than atomic bombs and there has been scepticism that Kim Jong-Un has reached the stage of testing one.
U.S. and South Korean military surveillance assets were closely monitoring the Punggye-ri site said a South Korean military official, who declined to be identified.
