North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said that his country was about to conduct new tests of ballistic missiles and nuclear warheads in the nearest future.

According to him, the planned tests are aimed to check reliability of North Korean nuclear arsenal.

North Korea's leader has already made a few bellicose statements during the last few weeks.

His hostile messages reflected a reaction to the extension of sanctions against the country, which had been introduced after the reports on a hydrogen bomb’s test in North Korea.

Experts suppose that North Korea has nuclear warheads. However, they express doubts that the country really is able to deliver them to its targets.

In particular, one of the most doubtful statements is Pyongyang’s message about creation of a small warhead, which can be attached to ballistic missiles.
