Just days after North Korea conducted a sixth test of a nuclear weapon it is now moving an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) toward moving its coast along the Sea of Japan.

The intelligence comes from South Korean National Intelligence Service detected the movement, which it says is occurring at night to avoid tracking.

North Korea tested an advanced nuclear device, which it claims is a hydrogen bomb, on Sunday triggering increasing fears among neighboring nations directly in the path of Kim Jong-Un’s quest to become a nuclear threat in the global picture.

The rogue nation recently fired a missile over Hokkaido near Sapporo, Japan, a distance of less than 900 miles.

Kim Jong-Un is the third member of his family to lead North Korea and has dedicated the resources and manpower of the country to developing a nuclear program that would put it

Kim claims the nuclear weapons are defensive only and are to serve as a deterrent to aggression from the U.S. and its allies in the region, South Korea and Japan.

In response to the test of the hydrogen weapon, President Trump announced his decision to sell Japan and South Korea “a substantially increased amount of highly sophisticated military equipment from the United States.”

The United Nation’s called an emergency meeting of the Security Council over the weekend, with U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley saying that North Korea is “begging for war,” while calling for tougher sanctions against the Kim dictatorship.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, however, speaking at the annual BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) summit in China on Tuesday, said that he believed additional sanctions against North Korea “would now be useless and ineffective, because they will eat grass but they will not turn away from the path that will provide for their security.”

Putin expressed a desire to promote dialogue among all interested parties, to establish security” in the region.

Meanwhile, Japan is conducting nuclear attack drills with instructions for people to “Take cover in a concrete building.”

One worried woman who was squatting near a cement wall told a reporter, “We are told to hit the ground or hide behind a wall, but will that really help? Will that really protect us if a missile falls here? I wonder.”

Will increased sanctions persuade North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un to stop testing nuclear weapons in the Korean peninsula?
