ZOE EFSTATHIOU for the Express reports, NORTH Korea’s nuclear capabilities are now so advanced that a top US official claims the threat Pyongyang poses “keeps [him] awake at night”. The hermit state is now able to launch a devastating nuclear weapon on a missile, a US defence official has warned. US surveillance of Pyongyang has been cranked up since North Korea carried out its fifth nuclear test in September, triggering a 5.3 magnitude earthquake.
The hermit state is at this point capable to launch a destructive nuclear weapon on a missile, a U.S. defence official has cautioned.
U.S. surveillance of Pyongyang is actually cranked up since North Korea carried out its fifth nuclear test in September, inducing a 5.3 magnitude earthquake.
Authorities today think dictator Kim Jong Un has the potential to mount nuclear warheads on Scud missiles, which can travel up to 110 miles.
But it is blurry if Pyongyang can connect missiles to larger rockets able of travelling additional distances.
It is also not yet determined whether North Korea has perfected hitting its favored targets.
The defense official stated:”It is the threat that keeps me awake at night.
“You’ve heard other senior leaders say the same thing, primarily because we don’t know what the ‘Dear Leader’ in North Korea really is after.”
The official included: “Truthfully, they have the capability right now to be able to deliver a nuclear weapon, they are just not sure about re-entry, that’s why they continue to test their systems out there.”
Reacting to the threat, the U.S. is fixed to release an advanced nuclear system to South Korea.
The Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system has long been in production since 2008 and is expected to be operational within 10 months, as outlined by the Pentagon.
THAAD is developed to intercept and eliminate short, medium and intermediate-range ballistic missiles.
Nevertheless, although THAAD could help protect the West from the threat presented by North Korea, it might generate concerns with China.
China opposes the system, thinking it will compromise Chinese security and intensify concerns with Pyongyang.
