North Korea’s claim of hydrogen bomb test draws global ireJanuary 6, 2016
North Korea announced Wednesday it had a perfect success of its first hydrogen bomb test, which is generally more powerful than a nuclear bomb. Nations across the globe are condemning the act, the United Nations says it will immediately put new sanctions against North Korea. The UN security council called North Korea’s action a clear threat to international peace and security, and the test is a violation of the international norms against nuclear testing. China, the North’s closest ally, condemned the test, saying they should stop taking any actions that would worsen the situation on the Korean Peninsula. Many nuclear analysts are skeptical of North Korea’s claim as they have a limited nuclear arsenal. This would be dangerous unexpected advance for the country that wants to build a long range nuclear weapon to defend itself from the West.
