USA to conduct bomber flight over S. Korea following Pyongyang's nuclear test

USA to conduct bomber flight over S. Korea following Pyongyang's nuclear test

North Korea is capable of detonating another nuclear device at any time at the country's main test site, South Korea has said.

On Sept. 9, the announcement said "Scientists carried out a nuclear explosion test for the judgment of the power of a nuclear warhead newly studied and manufactured by them [DPRK] at the northern test ground".

Previous nuclear tests conducted in the year 2006, 2009 and 2013 were basically atomic, which did increase Pyongyang expectations to look for more powerful weapons, but this statement, which was mostly ruled out by defence and nuclear experts were proved to be correct after the successful detonation of the Hydrogen bomb.The Hydrogen Bomb, mostly referred to as the H-bomb is a devastating weapon of destruction.

South Korea has previously avoided harsh rhetoric against North Korea and its leader Kim Jong Un but after Friday's nuclear test, South Korean President Park Geun-hye said Kim's "mental state is spiraling out of control" and that his government has "fanatic recklessness".

China deflected criticism that it could do more to stifle North Korea's nuclear ambitions, questioning the effectiveness of sanctions and saying the US has a responsibility to fix a problem it created.

The launched nuclear warhead can be mounted to ballistic missiles.

The US said that any provocations from the North would come with "serious consequences".

The report also mentioned that the Ruling Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea congratulates the people behind the successful nuke test. The toughest United Nations sanctions in two decades were imposed on the North for its fourth nuclear test in January, but the new test raised a question over whether sanctions can force a change in North Korea.

Both China and Russian Federation, the remaining veto powers, backed sanctions imposed in March following the North's January nuclear test, but their apparent ambivalence about fresh sanctions cast doubt on the Security Council's ability to quickly form a consensus.

But Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters Monday that Carter was "being too modest". The United States has about 28,500 troops in South Korea.
