Almaty. April 23. KazTAG - North Korea may test a new atomic bomb, reports rbc.ru.

"North Korea, apparently, is preparing a test of new atomic weapons (...) On the footage (from a private satellite-KazTAG) there is noticeable activeness in the region of Pangar-ri nuclear range, containers with cargoes are moving - similar activeness was traced before previous nuclear tests of the country. The Defense Ministry of North Korea also confirmed activeness at the range," reads the publication.

Pyongyan  declared about intention to conduct the fourth nuclear test "of a new level" late in March.

Observers believe it may be conducted during the visit of Barak Obama to South-East Asia planned this week. Precise plans of North Korea are still unknown, as the main activity connected with the nuclear program of the state is being conducted underground.
