US has no ‘expectation’ COVID-19 will delay North Korean nuclear test

Washington has warned of a 7th nuclear test coming as early as May

North Korea’s COVID-19 outbreak will not disrupt Kim Jong Un’s plans for a nuclear test, the State Department said Tuesday, denouncing the country’s continual weapons development as over a million suffer “fever” in the country.

The department’s spokesperson Ned Price delivered the assessment at a press conference on Tuesday.
