North Korea has conducted a "crucial test" at a satellite launch site to boost its nuclear deterrent, state media reports.
A spokesman เว็บพนันบอลดีที่สุด2020 told KNCA news agency it took place late on Friday at the Sohae Satellite Launching Ground, but did not give specific details.
It is not clear exactly what North Korea tested at the site.
Ankit Panda, North Korea expert UFA700 at the Federation of American Scientists, told the Topup700 it could be a ground test for a ballistic missile engine. South Korea's defence minister had previously said this was the purpose of the test earlier in December.
North Korea had W88 previously promised to dismantle the Sohae site.
US Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun is visiting to South Korean capital Seoul on Sunday. US President Donald Trump has said he still hopes to reach an agreement.
The UN Security Council 12BET met on Wednesday at the request of the US to discuss North Korea's weapons programme amid the growing tensions. North Korea called the meeting a "serious provocation".
Mr Trump made pursuing diplomacy with North Korea a centre-piece of his foreign policy agenda in 2018 but has failed to extract significant concessions on denuclearisation despite holding two summits with leader Kim Jong-un and even setting foot in North Korea.
The US tested a medium-range ballistic missile over the Pacific Ocean on Thursday - a weapon that would have been prohibited under the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty which President Trump left earlier this year.
