North Korea has successfully produced a nuclear weapon small enough to fit inside its missiles, several outlets reported Tuesday.
The Washington Post first reported that U.S. intelligence officials at the Defense Intelligence Agency concluded last month in a confidential assessment that North Korea has produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit in a missile. NBC News confirmed the report, citing an unnamed U.S. official.
The report included the intelligence community’s assessment that North Korea “has produced nuclear weapons for ballistic missile delivery, to include delivery by ICBM-class missiles,” or intercontinental ballistic missiles, according to the Washington Post.
Trump on Tuesday said action against North Korea must be “tough” and “decisive.”
