The North Korean government called the latest nuclear test ‘a gift package for the United States’ and promised more such probes if Washington continues to put pressure on Pyongyang. The country’s ambassador in the UN Han Tae Song said that at a conference in Geneva on Monday, as quoted by Retuers.
‘I am proud that just two days ago, the DPRK successfully tested the hydrogen bomb for the ICBM, which is part of the plan on creating strategic nuclear forces. The recent self-defense measures applied by my country are a gift package for the U.S. Theywill receive more ‘gift packages’ from my country as long as its relies on reckless provocations and futile attempts to put pressure on the DPRK,’ Han said.
As is known, on September 3, the North Korean military successfully tested a hydrogen bomb, as the country’s leader Kim Jong-un ordered. The government said there was no radiation leaks on any other negative consequences to the environment.
