The North Korean authorities once again announced successfully passed testing weapons. However, this time was not tested missile, thermonuclear warhead. Which, if the rhetoric of the North Korean leadership, can be mounted on Intercontinental ballistic missile (such Pyongyang is already there, it has been successfully tested 4th of July).
The testing of thermonuclear weapons has expectedly resulted in a number of countries, including France and Japan, called for the immediate holding of an emergency meeting of the UN security Council. However, it is known that usually such meetings, and accept them resolution on Pyongyang do not apply. Proof of it was, for example, and the recent missile launch, when the rocket flew over Japan. And the explosion of a thermonuclear warhead proves that North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN is not going to compromise, and aimed only at increasing rates.
It should be noted that the current test is not the first of its kind. That North Korea has a hydrogen (thermonuclear) bomb, Kim Jong UN said in 2015. And in early 2016, Pyongyang announced the successful test of this weapon. Many foreign experts agreed that it was all about nuclear, not hydrogen bomb — allegedly has been demonstrated by the relatively low power of the explosion.
This time, however, skepticism among foreign analysts less. Japanese seismologists have already stated that the power of an earthquake caused by the explosion on the North Korean ground, was ten times more than in the past testing of nuclear weapons in North Korea (it was held on 9 September 2016).
Current testing of the hydrogen bomb — but in addition successful — brings even more instability in the already tense situation on the Korean Peninsula. If earlier some experts questioned the fact that North Korea is simultaneously a thermonuclear warhead and an Intercontinental rocket under it, now convincingly proven otherwise. And this is especially dangerous in conditions when the President of the United States Donald trump is increasingly asserts the impossibility of solving the North Korean problem diplomatically.
“Tests of the hydrogen bomb, North Korea has demonstrated a high level of its nuclear technology, said in an interview with “MK” expert of the Board of the Military-industrial Commission of the Russian Federation Viktor MURAKHOVSKI. — Shows the North Korean side of the layout to the warhead (warhead) with a thermonuclear charge is well suited for installation on their medium-range missiles “Hanson-12”. This missile was recently once again tested — flew over Japan and overcame 2700 km. basically its range is 4,000 km, and to the American bases on GUAM (Pyongyang repeatedly threatened to attack it. — “MK”) from North Korea — 3200 km. most Likely, the DPRK has already established mass production “Hanson-12”. However, as demonstrated warhead suitable for tactical missiles. Having mastered the production technology of thermonuclear charge, the DPRK no longer limited in the power of their bombs — that is, they will be able to make (and maybe already produce) and warhead megaton class. The “classical” nuclear weapon has limited power, but the fusion (all modern ammunition such) — no. By the way, according to expert estimates, in the last test in North Korea was undermined by the charge power of about 50 kilotons”.
