North Korea may test H-bomb in Pacific: DPRK foreign minister

Ri Yong Ho says "highest-level" actions promised by Kim Jong Un may be atmospheric test

The "highest-level" actions referred to by Kim Jong Un in a speech yesterday might involve the test of a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean, North Korea's foreign minister said in New York on Thursday.

“It maybe means conducting the test of the strongest-ever Hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean,” Ri Yong Ho said, when asked about Kim Jong Un's promise of “corresponding, highest-level of hard-line countermeasure in history.”
