South Korea on a 24-hour standby against possible North Korea Nuclear Test


Seoul: The office of South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol has been on a 24-hour standby as the officials believe that North Korea is expected to conduct its seventh nuclear test at any time.

North Korea’s recent series of missile launches and other provocations are believed to be part of the regime’s preparations for the seventh nuclear test.

Another official informed that the presidential office has been coming up with detailed plans to respond to a North Korean nuclear test. “Everyone is in standby node,” the official said.

North Korea has erupted tensions in recent weeks by conducting a series of ballistic missile launches, including one over Japan, flying warplanes, and firing artillery shells into maritime buffer zones off its east and west coasts.

The National Intelligence Service has said that North Korea could carry out its seventh nuclear test between October 16 and November 7, after the National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party and before the U.S. mid-term elections.
