  • North Korea has a stockpile of between 2,500 and 5,000 tonnes of chemical weapons

KCNA called the USA claims "groundless" and said it was just an excuse for harsher sanctions after President Donald Trump labelled North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism.

The White House said in its new National Security Strategy, issued on Monday, that North Korea is pursuing "nuclear, chemical and biological weapons".

On Tuesday, Bloomberg reported that South Korean intelligence officials have warned North Korea is working on a program to prevent anthrax from disintegrating at the kinds of high temperatures that would be experienced during an ICBM's re-entry of Earth's atmosphere from space.

South Korea has long suspected North Korea was developing biological weapons.

If the threat of a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile strike wasn't enough to make people pay attention to North Korea, credible reports state the rogue nation is now conducting tests to arm those missiles with anthrax.

It added, "It is none other than the USA, chattering on "morality" and 'civilization, ' the criminal state that massacred the Korean people by bacteriological weapons during the Korean War and inflict sufferings upon the innocent people by continuing even now to openly use the internationally prohibited weapons".

North Korea's state news agency KCNA reported on a statement Wednesday by the Director of Press of the Institute for American Studies (IFAS), Ministry of Foreign Affairs, North Korea, saying claims by US media and experts that the East Asian country was "pushing forward with so-called "biological weapons development program" as a part of the 'wild ambition for developing the WMD (Weapons of mass destruction),'" were groundless.

A spokesperson for South Korean President Moon Jae-in said the proposed delay was "confined to our efforts to host a peaceful Olympics".

North Korea claimed it had completed its nuclear force after it fired a new Hwasong-15 ICBM in late November.

Experts say that North Korea's drive to create biological pesticides and fertilizers may provide the facilities as well as a cover for a biological weapons program.

North Korea sees the regular joint exercises as preparation for war. He was believed in some quarters to still be China's favored ruler of North Korea.

According to the newspaper, an unconfirmed intelligence report claims North Korea has already successfully tested such a warhead under those conditions.

It recollected when U.S. troops openly used biological weapons during the Korean War and inflicted needless suffering on innocent civilians.
