rth Korea is ready for another nuclear test that could come at any time. That's the message from South Korea on Monday, which claims that Pyongyang has completed preparations for its next detonation, just three days after its largest ever nuclear test on Friday. The report says an unused tunnel in the mountainous Punggye-ri nuclear zone could be the site of the next explosion.
Seoul says North Korea's weapons program is expanding fast, and Kim Jong-un clearly has no plans to hold back development. That's prompted Seoul to come out with a warning that sounds a lot like a typical threat from the North, saying it will annihilate Pyongyang with intensive bombing if there's any sign of the nuclear attack on the horizon.
And the areas where North Korean leaders are hiding will be, quote, reduced to ash and removed from the map. North Korea has hit back, calling the message from Seoul meaningless and laughable. And vowing to build up its nuclear stockpile.
