North Korea may be close to developing a nuclear warhead

The commander of the US forces in South Korea, Curtis Scaparrotti (Curtis Scaparrotti) made a statement that North Korea may have the possibility of creating a miniature nuclear warhead.

This statement reinforced fears of the international community that Pyongyang is close to equipping missiles with warheads. And this could pose a threat not only to South Korea, but also to the United States. The North conducted nuclear tests at 2006, 2009 and last year and according to experts, Pyongyang could accumulate technologies to create warheads of sufficient size to be installed on their ballistic missiles.

Pyongyang has already claimed that it has managed to create "light and miniature" nuclear warheads. Scaparrotti's comment on the North's nuclear capabilities came a day after Seoul and Washington agreed to postpone a wartime handover of operational control originally scheduled for December 2015 in light of the North's nuclear and missile threats.
