    Default North Korea's Nuclear Test

    North Korea's boasting about a successful nuclear test has sparked a barrage of global condemnation and threats of harsh sanctions.

    Reports of the explosion prompted worldwide concern it could seriously destabilise the region, and even Pyongyang's ally China said it strongly opposed the move.

    South Korea's spy chief said there were possible indications the North was moving to conduct more tests.

    The US called for immediate UN Security Council action, and along with Japan was expected to press for more sanctions on the impoverished North.

    Tony Blair called it a "completely irresponsible act'' and said it showed the country's "disregard'' for the concerns of the international community.

    There were conflicting reports on the size of the blast. South Korea said it was relatively small, while Russia said it had been perhaps as powerful as the nuclear bombs the US dropped on Japan during the Second World War.

    The North's official Korean Central News Agency said the underground test was performed successfully "with indigenous wisdom and technology 100 per cent,'' and that no radiation leaked from the test site.

    "It marks a historic event as it greatly encouraged and pleased the (Korean People's Army) and people that have wished to have powerful self-reliant defence capability,'' KCNA said, adding that it was "a great leap forward in the building of a great prosperous powerful socialist nation.''

    If details of the test are confirmed, North Korea would be the ninth country known to have nuclear weapons, along with the United States, Russia, France, China, Britain, India, Pakistan and Israel.

    "It marks a historic event as it greatly encouraged and pleased the (Korean People's Army) and people that have wished to have powerful self-reliant defence capability"
    A nuclear North Korea would dramatically alter the strategic balance of power in the Pacific region and seriously undermine global anti-proliferation efforts. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the test would mark the beginning of a "dangerous nuclear age'' in north Asia.

    Australia and South Korea said there was seismic confirmation that pointed to a nuclear test, and a top Russian military officer confirmed the device tested was a nuclear weapon, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported. However, Japan and the United States said they couldn't immediately confirm a nuclear test.

    South Korea's seismic monitoring centre said a magnitude 3.6 tremor felt at the time of the alleged nuclear test wasn't a natural occurrence.

    The size of the tremor could indicate an explosive equivalent to 550 tons of TNT, said Park Chang-soo, spokesman at the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources - which would be far smaller than the nuclear bombs the US dropped on Japan in the Second World War.


    But Russia's Defence Minister Sergei Ivanov said that the force of the blast was between five and 15 kilotons and that there was "no doubt'' there had been a nuclear blast, the RIA-Novosti news agency reported.

    The test could further harden international consensus against North Korea, said Toshimitsu Shigemura, a North Korea expert at Tokyo's Waseda University.

    "Japan and the United States will further strengthen overall cooperation... including missile defence,'' he said.

    "The nuclear test will also bring Japan, China and South Korea closer, though political differences will remain.''

    I don't see how the US can have WMDs & then try to ban the rest of the world from having any.

    Would you like Kim Jung to have WMDs? The US isnt completely against everyone who has weapons. India has them and we dont say anything to them for the most part, yet they're willing to blast Pakistan off. Its when you have ppl like Jung or are obviously lunatics.

    The most irresponsible country with nuclear warheads is the US. You shouldn't be worrying about other countries leaking radiation or using nuclear bombs on humans, the US has been doing that ever since they got nuclear warheads (hiroshima) and still is (afghanistan/iraq). Yeah, they're using them. We're all guinea pigs.

    Jump on youtube and search the Korean War.
    The civil war you speak of involved the democratic US and Communist Russia in a trusteeship agreement to stabilize the region. That's how the Republic of Korea was divided in the first place with the adoption of the political systems. After US and Soviet withdrawal, NK tried to enforce their ideologies on the South, the Korean War became. Once war broke out, US came back to the peninsula and defended the south.
    Thank you
