A U.S. official tells Fox News that North Korea may be in the final stages of preparing its sixth nuclear weapons test as South Korean officials insist Pyongyang may already have the capacity to launch a nuclear weapon test at any time, executing it within hours of dictator Kim Jong-un’s command.
“The test could come as early as the end of the month,” the American official tells Fox News, which adds that multiple officials have warned that there is evidence of North Korea having completed the construction of various tunnels surrounding a nuclear test site used to transport necessary materials.
The South Korean news agency Yonhap cites South Korean defense officials making a similar warning as their American counterparts Friday. “It’s assessed that North Korea is capable of conducting a nuclear test within hours after Kim Jong-un’s order,” an anonymous official told the outlet. “We are keeping close tabs on its nuclear-related facilities with combined assets with the U.S.”
