THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: Kim Jong Un says country has small nukes

The Korean News Central Agency says that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met his nuclear scientists for a briefing and declared he was amazed that the nuclear warheads are small enough to fit into ballistic missiles.

Based on the report, the North Korean leader told the scientists that the stronger the country's nuclear strike capability, the more effective it will be as a deterrent to aggression.

Pyongyang has previously claimed it has nuclear warheads small enough to fit into long-range missiles but experts have questioned such claims. They've warned last Monday of pre-emptive strikes following the US-South Korean joint military exercises that commenced on that day and will last until the end of April.

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula remained high following NoKor's nuclear test and rocket launch, which prompted the UN to adopt tough new sanctions.
