WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, September 22, 2017) – The North Korean foreign minister says his government may consider testing a hydrogen bomb of unprecedented scale in the Pacific ocean.

Ri Yong Ho was speaking in New York to reporters from South Korea's Yonhap news agency who asked him to clarify a threat made by his leader against the United States.

Kim Jong-un had warned of the "highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history."

Mr Ri said North Korea could consider a hydrogen bomb test, although he qualified this by saying he did not know Kim's exact thoughts.
