North Korea wants to make more nuclear bombs, ready to restart a closed reactor amid its recent threats to attack the United States.
FOX News Radio's Simon Owen reports:
North Korea shut down this reactor six years ago as part of a deal to get international aid. But it's now vowing to restart the facility to boost its nuclear defenses.
South Korea says the announcement is regrettable.
The U.S. is currently involved in routine military drills with the South. And the U.S. Navy has now deployed a destroyer capable of defending against missiles. Although the White House says there are no signs of increased military activity in North Korea.
