North Korea could conduct nuclear tests ‘any time’, warns US official

Kim Jong-un is very upset about the ongoing joint military exercise between South Korea and the US on the border of North Korea. In the meantime, due to the extension of the deadline for joint exercises, Kim Jong Un and his sister have also threatened America and South Korea with fierce action. Meanwhile, such sensational indications have been found at North Korea’s nuclear test site that the sensation has spread all over the world, including to America. Is North Korea planning a nuclear test? Can North Korea launch a nuclear attack on America and South Korea in a fit of rage?

Rafael Grossi, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said on Tuesday that there are “very disturbing” signs at North Korea’s Punggye-ri nuclear test site. Grossi made the comments amid speculation that North Korea is preparing to conduct its first nuclear test since 2017, Yonhap News Agency reported. “Preparations for nuclear testing are underway at Punggye-ri, and we are seeing signs of activity near Adit 3 of the test site,” he said in a statement to the Board of Governors.

North Korea secretly prepared for the test

He noted that the road to the former Adit 4 entrance has been reconstructed, although the agency did not see any signs of excavation. Grossi said North Korea appears to be secretly operating a 5-megawatt reactor at the Yongbyon nuclear site. “There were indications of possible tests of the Light Water Reactor (LWR) cooling system in late September and early October, and changes to the LWR’s cooling water outlet channel in October,” he said. North Korea voluntarily destroyed the Punggye-ri site in 2018 to show the international community its willingness to denuclearize. However, the country is believed to have begun repairs on the facility, the site of all six nuclear tests it has ever conducted. In September 2017, Pyongyang conducted its sixth and final nuclear test.
