North Korea likely to conduct 6th nuclear test: defense ministry

North Korea is likely to conduct its sixth nuclear test as well as an additional intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test, the Ministry of National Defense said Monday.

“There is a possibility North Korea will test its nuclear warhead and missile capabilities through a nuclear test with more explosive power,” the defense ministry said in a report to the National Assembly. “North Korea’s Punggye-ri nuclear test site is always ready to conduct a nuclear test at any time.”

The prospect came during an emergency meeting of the Assembly’s National Defense Committee, convened following North Korea’s alleged second ICBM test late Friday night.
