A US military report has claimed that North Korea has up to 60 nuclear bombs and 5,000 tons of chemical weapons.
In the report, entitled ‘North Korean tactics’, which was published last month, the US Army said it was unlikely the country would ever give up its stockpile, adding it uses them as a deterrent to countries seeking regime change.
‘Estimates for North Korean nuclear weapons range from 20-60 bombs, with the capability to produce 6 new devices each year,’ the report states, adding that other estimates suggest they could obtain up to 100 nuclear bombs by the end of 2020.
