MOSCOW, January 14. /TASS/. Russia has yet no confirmation that North Korea detonated a hydrogen bomb, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Thursday.
"We have been collecting relevant data and information to make our conclusion both through relevant national monitoring services and through global monitoring services, for example, within the IAEA framework," Zakharova told a briefing. "Experts keep working."
On January 6, the leadership of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) announced a successful test of a hydrogen bomb. The governments of many countries and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon condemned the action.
At the same time, many international experts voice serious doubts that the North Korea really managed to create a hydrogen bomb. Specialists assume that Pyongyang detonated a nuclear warhead to which hydrogen was added to intensify the reaction, but that there is no talk of a genuine hydrogen bomb.
