North Korea’s nuclear push: Kim Jong-un BOLSTERING nuke arsenal by building second reactor

NORTH Korea is pushing ahead with its nuclear ambitions by ramping up efforts to produce parts for a new nuclear reactor, the United Nations has warned.

The rogue state is not backing down quietly from the threats it made to build a missile capable of destruction.

Instead, Kim Jong Un’s regime is continuing to operate the main existing reactor that provides fuel for its atom bombs while hunting for new parts, the UN nuclear watchdog said in an annual report on Friday.

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said: ”It’s a concern, it shows that North Korea hasn’t backed down, they haven’t stopped what they are doing and it is the reason why we continue to have our guard up when it comes to North Korea.”

The move comes despite US President Donald Trump’s praising the North Korean’s leader for backing off on plans to fire missiles toward the US Pacific territory of Guam.

He claimed this was because Kim was “starting to respect” the United States.

Mr Trump said: “And you see what’s going on in North Korea. All of a sudden, I don’t know, who knows, but I can tell you, what I said, that’s not strong enough. Some people said it was too strong. It’s not strong enough.”

North Korea has conducted two nuclear tests and dozens of missile tests since the beginning of last year, defying world powers and raising fears of a conflict breaking out on the heavily militarised Korean peninsula.

A missile test last month put the mainland US in range. Pyongyang later said it had a plan to fire missiles at the US Pacific territory of Guam, while Mr Trump said any threats would be met with “fire and fury”.

It is not clear whether Pyongyang can miniaturise a nuclear bomb enough to fit it on top of such a missile, and it is widely believed it cannot yet protect such a warhead from the heat generated when a missile re-enters the earth’s atmosphere.
