North Korea on Sunday said that they have developed advanced thermonuclear weapon that possesses "great destructive power" and will be loaded on a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that experts believe has the range to hit much of the United States. Leader Kim Jong Un has been pursuing a nuclear device small and light enough to fit on a long-range ballistic missile, without affecting its range as well as making it capable of surviving re-entry into the earth's atmosphere. Pictures showed Kim inspecting a silver-colored warhead in the visit accompanied by nuclear scientists, with a concept diagram of its Hwasong-14 long-range ballistic missile seen hanging on the wall. Now, with these new claims of an H-bomb, it seems the Kim regime is getting closer and closer to mastering its missile technology.
