NORTH Korea is determined to go ahead with another nuclear missile test NEXT WEEK after being humiliated over last night’s failed launch, according to an international correspondent.
Kim Jong-un is expected to push ahead with plans to carry out a North Korean nuclear test in just eight days time, according to reports. The rogue regime endured global humiliation after their intermediate balistic missile yesterday blew up “within seconds” of the test launch. However, the volatile leader has refused to back down despite the region edging towards all-out war with the US. Instead, North Korea is expected to launch its biggest ever nuclear missile test in on April 25.
Experts believe that Kim Jong-un will choose to make a stand on the date later this month, tying the launch to country’s celebration of Military Foundation Day. North Korea has a consistent record of nuclear test launches on national holidays. However, sources from the Trump White House claim a nuclear test would prompt a strong military response. A White House official said: “If it had of been a nuclear test, then other actions would have been taken from the US.”
