ABSTRACT
The article reports on North Korea's announcement that it had successfully conducted an underground test of a nuclear device. In a public statement, the government said the test will contribute to defending the peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula. Based on seismographic evidence, the test's explosive yield was placed at roughly 0.5 kilotons. The presence of nuclear weapons in North Korea represents a direct challenge to the U.S., which pledged to prevent axis of evil nations.
