Kim Jong-un could ‘carry out nuclear test to coincide with Biden inauguration’

Joe BIden’s Presidential election win has raised fears North Korea may begin testing nuclear weapons within weeks.

The 77-year-old Democrat leader won a close election race in the USA earlier this month – with incumbent President Donald Trump finally conceding he had lost the election this weekend, almost two weeks after the November 3 vote, before later retracting the comment.

However, reports from North Korea are suggesting dictator Kim Jong-Un may soon test weapons of mass destruction around the time Mr Biden is expected to be sworn in as President in January 2021.

Mr Jong-Un has been keeping a low profile in the past two weeks amid confusion and arguments in the USA over the bitter 2020 election result.

Sputnik News quotes former US Department of State official Evans Revere warning: “It is possible Pyongyang will conduct a nuclear or long-range missile test before the inauguration or shortly thereafter.”

He goes on to suggest the nuclear test could be "a way of laying down a marker with the new president and increasing its negotiating leverage with Washington".

He added in his warning: "The Biden team will be mindful of the failings of Trump’s approach, which has amounted to turning a blind eye to North Korea’s steady accumulation of nuclear weapons and testing of medium-range missiles."

  • Chilling satellite images of North Korea show Kim Jong-un is mining for uranium

The inauguration of Joe Biden as President of the USA is due to be held on Wednesday, January 20, in front of the US Capitol in Washington DC.

Mr Revere’s warnings come on the heels of satellite images seemingly showing North Korea mining for uranium, boosting fears the wayward nation is creating more nuclear weapons.

Satellite images taken earlier this month show a huge increase in activity around known uranium mines.

Photos dated from November 3 – coincidentally, the day of the 2020 USA Presidential Election – show what are believed to be working uranium mines in the southern province of Pyongsan.

Compared with images captured in January this year, it is clear that the size of the mining site has grown significantly over the space of 10 months.

There have been recent reports that the dictator-led nation has stock piled 60 nuclear missiles and has one million soldiers “primed for war”.
