North Korea is armed with up to 60 nuclear bombs and 5,000 tons of chemical weapons. This became known from the US military report, the data of which is quoted by the Daily Mail newspaper.
вЂњThe data on the stocks of nuclear weapons in North Korea varies from 20 to 60 bombs, with the ability to produce six new devices each year,вЂќ the document says. Its authors added that, according to experts, by the end of 2020, the DPRK will be able to produce up to 100 warheads.
Pyongyang holds such reserves in case of a threat of regime change from other states, the US military said. In any conflict, they are sure, North Korea will also use chemical weapons, which are likely to use various viruses. So, just one pound of anthrax attached to a rocket could kill 50,000 people.
