Have South Korea North Korea Missile Nuclear Doubt


Seoul - So far, North Korea (Korea) is always touting its nuclear weapons capability to threaten the United States (U.S.) and its allies. However, South Korea (ROK), an ally of the U.S., doubted the ability of North Korea. Mainly related to ballistic missiles loaded with nuclear warheads.

The DIA report also cold response by the Pentagon and a number of other senior U.S. officials. Not much different from South Korea, some in the U.S. still doubt if it is associated with the ability of North Korea's nuclear weapons.

"Not quite right to believe that the North Korean regime has been tested fully, develop or demonstrate such a nuclear capability," said Pentagon spokesman George Little, responding to the intelligence report.

"North Korea has never demonstrated the ability of (weapons) and we do not believe they have the capability at this time," said a senior U.S. administration official who declined to be named.
