North Korean foreign minister's warning of a nuclear test over the Pacific Ocean should be heeded, says Pyongyang official

  • A senior Pyongyang official has said that attention should be paid to the warning of North Korea's foreign minister of a likely atmospheric nuclear test over the Pacific ocean. Ri Yong Pil, who is a senior diplomat in the Foreign Ministry of North Korea, stated that the minister's words should be taken literally as he is well aware of the supreme leader's intentions. In September, Ri Yong Ho, the foreign minister, had stated that North Korea may consider conducting over the Pacific Ocean “the most powerful detonation” of a hydrogen bomb.
