PYONGYANG, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Friday accused the United States of planning to re-deploy tactical nuclear weapons in South Korea.
The spokesman for the Institute of American Studies at the DPRK's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said the Trump Administration is publicizing through the media the "possibility of redeploying tactical nuclear weapons" into South Korea and developing an up-to-date miniaturized nuclear bomb.
"Recently, NBC and other American press reported that the Trump administration is currently examining various plans of developing an up-to-date miniaturized nuclear bomb of low intensity to deal with nuclear threats posed by countries like the DPRK and Russia," the official Korean Central News Agency quoted the spokesman as saying.
The spokesman said the deliberate leakage of the information about tactical nuclear weapons by the Trump administration "coincides with its moves to impose heinous sanctions, pressure and military threat on the DPRK."
