Report: N. Korea seems ready for nuclear test

North Korea appears to be ready to conduct a nuclear test in the near future, Yonhap reported on Friday, citing an official from South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol's administration.

The news came just a day after North Korea allegedly launched three short-range ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan.

Meanwhile, the White House claimed Pyongyang is preparing to conduct a nuclear test ahead of United States President Joe Biden's forthcoming visit to Asia. Biden will pay a visit to Japan and South Korea between May 20 and 24.
