North Korea nuclear test: Kim Jong-un ‘preparing to launch missile’

North Korea has launched a scathing attack on the “warmongers” in Seoul, along with South Korea’s allies in Washington and Tokyo, following Sunday’s missile launch, reports Neil Connor in Beijing.

Official media in Pyongyang criticised the response from the South Korea “puppet forces” in calling for more UN action against the North and the “introduction of nuclear strategic assets into South Korea”.

“This is not only the height of the persecution mania of those upset by the recent launch of the Juche weapon but also useless racket of those hell-bent on escalating confrontation,” said a commentary from the Rodong Sinmun newspaper, according to the official KCNA news agency.

Juche is North Korea’s home-grown ideology which promotes self-reliance and devotion to the country’s rulers.
