'Very Hostile': US President Donald Trump Reacts To North Korea Nuke Test

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley addresses a UN Security Council meeting on North Korea

North Korea is intent on developing a nuclear-armed ballistic missile capable of reaching the continental U.S. The regime is believed to have more than a dozen nuclear weapons and is now working to miniaturize one to fit on a missile.

The latest test is the North Korea's most powerful nuclear test to date.

Pyongyang declared the test of what it called a hydrogen bomb to be a "perfect success".

Atomic or "A-bombs" work on the principle of nuclear fission, where energy is released by splitting atoms of enriched uranium or plutonium encased in the warhead.

Sunday's test - the first since Trump took office in January - offers further evidence that North Korea is moving perilously close to developing a nuclear warhead capable of being fitted on to an ICBM that can strike the United States mainland. "North Korea might have successfully tested a weapon with significantly large capability".

North Korea last carried out a nuclear test in September 2016.

Despite the bluster and threats from the Trump administration in Washington and near-universal condemnation from around the world, Pyongyang is not going to halt or constrain its nuclear activities.

Curious about how North Korea's state news's Web site was reporting this major news, here is what they put online at 2:30 AM E.D.T. on September 3. It's further considering deployment of new USA weapons on the Korean peninsula, as part of a long-standing U.S.

He also urged "all diplomatic measures" including United Nations sanctions to "completely isolate North Korea", presidential security adviser Chung Eui Yong said in a statement. South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said they detected an "artificial seismic wave" at 12:29 p.m. local time. A quake's magnitude is used in calculating a nuclear device's yield.

Seismological data from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) showed that an explosion caused a 6.3-magnitude tremor in the country's northeast, not far from the country's Punggye-ri nuclear test site.

Japan's foreign minister, Taro Kono, described the new explosion as "extremely unforgivable".

"If North Korea has gone ahead with a nuclear test, this is absolutely not acceptable and we will have to strongly protest".

Xi himself did not mention North Korea during a 45-minute speech, while Chinese state media gave top billing to him and the summit, with the nuclear test receiving only passing mention. It is the rogue nation's sixth, and most powerful, nuclear test.

The U.S. State Department had no immediate reaction.

"The worldwide community must treat this new provocation with the utmost firmness, in order to bring North Korea to come back unconditionally to the path of dialogue and to proceed to the complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantling of its nuclear and ballistic program". It first conducted an underground test in 2006. -South Korea military exercises, when it fired a potentially nuclear-capable midrange missile over northern Japan.

"But they won't go far enough to have an impact on North Korea's determination to become a nuclear power", the diplomat said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The liberal South Korean leader has been frustrated by Pyongyang's continued provocative behavior that has prevented him from pursuing a more engagement oriented approach to reduce tensions with the North through dialogue and cooperation. The metro area is home to almost half of the South Korean population of 50 million. It reportedly shook buildings in China and in Russian Federation.

Just before the test, according to state media, Kim and the other senior leaders at the party presidium meeting discussed "detailed ways and measures for containing the US and other hostile forces' vicious moves for sanctions".
