North Korea’s neighbours to create A-bombs of their own?

The North Korean nuclear test affects the balance of power in the region, says Pavel Leshakov, the head of the Centre for Korean Studies at Moscow State University.

“Japan, so they say, has enough plutonium to make weaponry within several months, it only need some political resolve. There was an article before the test that South Korea could make their own nuclear test within one year. It is a kind of domino effect.”
