North Korea has conducted another crucial test at Sohae satellite launch site to boost its nuclear deterrent.
A spokesman told KNCA news agency it took place yesterday at the Sohae Satellite Launching Ground, but did not give specific details. This is the second test to take place at the Sohae site in less than a week.
Talks between the US and North Korea about its nuclear programme remain deadlocked. US President Donald Trump has refused to lift sanctions until North Korea fully abandons its nuclear programme.
