North Korean scientists have been able to achieve miniaturization of nuclear charges while working to create new small-sized nuclear warheads. This statement was made by the Japanese newspaper "Yomiuri".


Japan confident that DPRK has created small nuclear warheads


According to the publication, information on the successes of DPRK scientists who managed to create small-sized nuclear warheads is contained in the Japanese White Book for 2019, which the Cabinet of Ministers is due to approve in September. However, there is no direct indication that these works have already been carried out and have ended in success, but it is only assumed that they "achieved success." In addition, it is indicated that the military activities of the DPRK constitute a "serious and imminent threat."

Obviously, (North Korea) has already carried out miniaturization of the (atomic charge) and (creation of a nuclear) warhead

- says the White Paper.

At the same time, it is reported that in the White Book issued in January of this year for 2018, it was said about "North Korea's achievement of a significant level in the creation of small nuclear warheads."

It is noted that at the end of last year, South Korean intelligence received information about the allegedly ongoing work in the DPRK to create small nuclear warheads for North Korean intercontinental ballistic missiles.

    Yesterday's news ... a few years ago there was talk of creating a compact-sized nuclear explosive device in the DPRK for sabotage activities.
    So the US has a reason for a nervous breakdown ... placing such a military unit near a US military base somewhere in the world and applying it will be a big boom ... and go and prove whose it is.

      Forever North Koreans live in poverty. Well, for now, someone’s nerves can’t stand it.

    South Korean intelligence received information about allegedly held in North Korea
    South Korea's intelligence can easily compete with "British scientists". Their repeated information about the executions in the DPRK with the personal participation of Kim Jong-un alone from various types of weapons is worth a lot. I think that the DPRK special services are actively misinforming the intelligence of their neighbors in pursuit of their interests.

    The 50-ctn spherical nuclear charge in a beryllium shell with 6 kg of plutonium, tritium amplification and octogen implosion is the size of a rugby ball.

    The question is how much and when will the DPRK sell new small-sized nuclear warheads to Iran?

      Duc, given the extremely close cooperation of the two countries in this area, it will be absolutely not surprising that the Persians "did have it with them." yes

    The question is when will the hostages near our borders place everything in a row?

    This is exactly where "it" is very well defined, according to the analysis of the material used

    When they stamp themselves. And this will not happen very soon. Therefore, the sale to Iran can not be worried. YES and Iran does not need this either. If we develop our military nuclear program, then it is complete. And to buy 2-3 charges - what to do with them? They still won’t do the weather, and their use in the absence of reserves will only put an end to Iran itself

      This is with an aggressive strategy of using nuclear weapons, of course it is not enough for an attack. As a deterrent, the presence of even 3 charges (it is not clear where for reconnaissance of the aggressor) can make you think. "A cornered rat bites" - familiar? Imagine that these are nuclear bites, will you still drive them or will you start calculating the damage from use in your own metropolis?

    It is not necessary, Gennady to view intelligence work through the prism of the media that write. After all, the mere phrase "according to the intelligence of the Republic of Korea" lends weight to all this scribbling in the media. Even if they write deliberate nonsense about shooting from anti-aircraft weapons or from what else there.
    I must say that the data of the South Korean intelligence services, if they appear in any publications, are interesting enough and not fake, like rumors with executions. In particular, the photos that were transferred and commented on in such a resource as "38 parallel" (North Korean missile boat) appeared earlier than the Americans. They later gave a footnote to this resource.

    At the time of the agreement, Iran had 8,5 tons of uranium enriched up to 20%. Uranium was exported to Russia. Centrifuge production at that time did not allow creating a nuclear charge by 2015-2016 (conclusion of the Agreement). Where did Iran suddenly get highly enriched weapons-grade uranium? But is Iran actually going to test this charge, or is it not necessary, will Allah set the right path?

    The question is whose it was. The North Koreans had only 6 tests, and 5 of them can be attributed in general to tests of tactical charges in power. According to the mass-dimensional characteristics, nothing can be said at all. And only the last, sixth test and the silent photo of Eun with a mock YaBZ can possibly be interpreted that in the photo the charge is from the ballistic missile or ICBM

    But even if such a charge is created, then there may be 3-4, hardly more

    What did you want? The conditions for negotiations and disarmament remained the same .. Withdrawal of American bases from Japan and South Korea, AT ALL! By the way, Russia and the PRC, and especially the DPRK, are striving for this! The United States tested nuclear weapons in Japan, and you are puppets so far .. And you have no faith!
