One day after Kim Jong Un's regime balked at this weekend's UN sanctions,
promising retaliation and threatening to attack the US with a nuclear
weapon, Japan's government has released a new 500-page report in which
it warns that the threat from North Korean nuclear weapons has reached a
“new stage” and that Pyongyang’s weapons program had “advanced
considerably,” to the point where it was possible that the regime had acquired the ability to miniaturize nuclear warheads.
The white paper, approved by Japan’s cabinet on Tuesday morning, was
published less than two weeks after North Korea test-fired its second
ICBM, which US experts have said may be able to reach most of the
continental United States.
According to the Guardian,
"Japan’s defence ministry said that security threats had reached a new
stage after the North conducted two nuclear tests and more than 20
ballistic missile launches last year."
