Global Times special correspondent in the United States think Yao reported with the Associated Press reported that the second North Korean underground nuclear test in the world that Pyongyang from its ballistic missiles equipped with nuclear warheads is only a matter of time.
North Korea in recent years has gained enough plutonium, enough to produce six nuclear fissile material needed — compared to the United States, Russia, China, the nuclear arsenal, even with the recent Pakistan nuclear club members compared North Korea’s nuclear capability is negligible.
But North Korea has received considerable progress, and showed its determination to establish a reliable nuclear deterrent. From Pyongyang’s remarks made in the short term probably not see the process of North Korea to stop its nuclear weapons possible.
Brussels think-tank ‘analysis of the international crisis’ analyst Daniel Pinkston believes that North Korea has mastered the more data about nuclear bombs and knowledge, and shows the decisive stance on the nuclear issue.
yield nuclear explosion, there are still differences between the parties on the results for further analysis. There are estimates that its thousands of tons of TNT equivalent, while the Russian Defense Ministry’s data, compared with between 1 to 20,000 tons.
if North Korea’s nuclear bomb and the Russian equivalent of the data is really pretty, its TNT equivalent with Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear explosions equivalent comparison – Pinkston and Institute of Science and International Security in Washington President David Albright believed that the Russian data too high.
Pyongyang’s ultimate goal is to install nuclear warheads on ballistic missiles. But for this project progressed, analysts have a different assessment.
“Pyongyang plans to eventually install nuclear warheads on missiles, the formation of effective nuclear deterrent.” President Albright Institute of International Security in Washington said. He said that the DPRK has nuclear weapons technology has the ability to. However, ballistic missiles with nuclear warheads are stable and reliable performance is still questionable.
Korea National Institute of foreign affairs and security, Professor Yoon Deok-min said that North Korea appears to be a nuclear bomb is still small study, so that it can serve as a real deterrent to the formation of the missile payload. But he believes that North Korea nuclear weapons of the success is only ‘a matter of time’.
he said, ballistic missiles with nuclear warheads will be the worst. North Korea has developed a range of about 3,000 km medium-range ballistic missile capable of easily covering Japan South Korea, Guam and even deterrence.
Yoon Deok-min, said disturbing is that missile and nuclear tests have been in place within a very short interval. North Korea missile test events from this week’s nuclear test is less than two months. Although North Korea claims that its launch of the satellite, but the United States and other countries believe that Pyongyang is indeed an excuse to launch a satellite to do test-fired ballistic missiles.
However, analysts believe that North Korea does not have immediate access to project nuclear warhead capability. Korea National Defense University researcher Cha Du-hyeogn that North Korea complete the process of nuclear weapons may also need four years.
Pinkston believes that if the calculation shows the final conclusion of this nuclear explosion of TNT equivalent in line with the current low estimate of the value of words (such as 3000 tons of TNT equivalent), it is likely that North Korea is working to miniaturize nuclear weapons of the study.
Deputy Chairman Ivan Oerlich Federation of American Scientists that the explosion of the nuclear explosion equivalent symptoms show first nuclear test in 2006 than the larger and more but less than Russia’s estimates.
North Korea’s nuclear weapons program also increased the international community’s concerns about nuclear proliferation.
President Albright Institute of International Security in Washington said, “compared to the North Korean bomb, North Korea is more alarming proliferation of nuclear weapons technology, North Korea will export its nuclear technology with any concerns would not exist.”
analysts will also have the hands of the weight of nuclear proliferation as Pyongyang, Pyongyang hopes to nuclear proliferation, “bargaining” in negotiations with Washington that Pyongyang obtain satisfactory results. South Korean Foreign Affairs and National Security Institute, Professor Kim Tae-woo said that “Pyongyang wants to normalize relations with the U.S., if Pyongyang to achieve this goal, it will commit to non-proliferation of nuclear weapons.”
Washington after the nuclear tests of verbal condemnation of Pyongyang, and claimed that if North Korea to seek normal relations with the United States, we must give up its nuclear program.
the UN Security Council condemnation of North Korea launched a rocket after Pyongyang announced its withdrawal from six-party talks last month. North Korea’s move to make it tough for the current tense situation even more pessimistic about the future direction.
“hawks got into the cockpit, I think this is the case in Pyongyang.” Pinkston said: “The prospects are very bleak.”
