North Korea prepares to conduct fourth nuclear test

The authorities of North Korea are ready to conduct the fourth nuclear test in order to protect the sovereignty of the country, the central North Korean newspaper "Nodon Sinmun".

Pyongyang demonstrates "its firm intention to take retaliatory measures, including a nuclear test, to protect the country's sovereignty and dignity," the article said.

South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung Se, presiding over the UN Security Council, said this week that "a new nuclear test by North Korea must be prevented by concerted efforts of the international community."

The DPRK conducted previous nuclear tests in 2006, 2009 and 2013. In March, the UN Security Council 2013 approved another set of restrictions that allows you to block banking transactions, freeze DPRK accounts, inspect air and sea vessels, as well as diplomats for the withdrawal of large amounts of cash if they are suspected of being used to develop Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programs. .
