South Korea is considering moving US ‘tactical nuclear bombs’ back on to its territory after Kim Jong-un’s hydrogen bomb test, it has emerged.

North Korea staged its sixth nuclear test on Sunday, estimated to be up to ten times more powerful than the device dropped on Hiroshima.

Seoul has been ramping up its defenses in response, with some officials even considering asking the United States to bring back tactical nuclear weapons – a generation after their removal from the Korean Peninsula.

South Korea also said it was talking to Washington about deploying aircraft carriers and strategic bombers to the Korean peninsula.

It comes as one of Kim Jong-un’s top diplomats said on Tuesday it was ready to send ‘more gift packages’ to the United States – a reference to its nuclear test.

Han Tae Song, ambassador of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the U.N. in Geneva, was addressing the U.N.-sponsored Conference on Disarmament two days after his country detonated its sixth nuclear test explosion.

‘I am proud of saying that just two days ago on the 3rd of September, DPRK succcessfully carried out a hydrogen bomb test for intercontinental ballistic rocket under its plan for building a strategic nuclear force,’ Han told the Geneva forum.
