North Korea has military nuclear weapons program which is estimated to have an arsenal of 30 to 40 nuclear weapons. North Korea unlike other countries, they have invested highly on weapons at the expense of industrial developments. The country owns several chemical and biological weapons which have prompted the country to imposition of sanctions. In 2006, North Korea demonstrated its nuclear capabilities by conducting its first underground nuclear test. They detonated a plutonium based device with an estimated yield of 0.2 to 1 Kilotons. Since then North Korea has been in a race to making nuclear weapons despite the disarmament agreements with US. In 2020 alone North Korea is estimated to have made over eight nuclear weapons hence posing a threat to the whole world. In October 10, 2020, North Korea unveiled a massive ICBM during a military parade for the 75th anniversary of Workers’ Party of Korea, which military analyst believed it was one of the world’s largest road-mobile ballistic missiles. North Korea poses uranium mines containing an estimated 4 million tons of high grade uranium ore. Uranium has aided in making of nuclear weapons without making the country depend on foreign aid. Its weapon stockpile continues to increase daily causing an alarm to the world especially its rival United States.
