North Korea Testing Anthrax Warheads for Ballistic Missiles

  • North Korea has a stockpile of between 2,500 and 5,000 tonnes of chemical weapons

"To send North Korea a unified message from the worldwide community, that we will not accept you as a nuclear nation", US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said.

The report is also said to state that the U.S. government is aware of the tests - which North Korea reportedly has strongly denied and threatened to "take revenge" on the USA for saying it is developing biological weapons.

The report by NTI also stated North Korea was capable of indigenously producing other agents of biological warfare including Variola major (smallpox), Francisella tularensis (rabbit fever), and Bunyaviridae Hantavirus (Korean hemorrhagic fever).

Although North Korea is party to both the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention and the Geneva Protocol, it is suspected of maintaining an ongoing biological weapons program.

In his National Security Strategy released this week, U.S. President Donald Trump stressed that North Korea is pursuing "nuclear, chemical and biological weapons that could threaten our homeland".

The report, based off of a source in South Korea, said that it did not have confirmation about whether the tests had been successful.

The US and Canada say countries that sent forces as part of a United Nations command to support South Korea during the Korean War will participate.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has trumpeted his country's nuclear program.
