MOSCOW, December 10. /TASS/. Russia’s stance on the situation on the Korean Peninsula remains unchanged, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Thursday, answering a question whether it will be affected by Pyongyang’s statement on developing a hydrogen bomb.
"I have not seen these reports (on the hydrogen bomb — TASS), I will check them and will comment on them later," she said. "Our stance on the situation on the Korean Peninsula is well known, it has not undergone any changes, I can only reaffirm it."
According to the Korean Central News Agency, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said that his country was "ready to detonate an atomic bomb and a hydrogen bomb to reliably protect the sovereignty and dignity of the nation."
Meanwhile, a TASS correspondent reported from Seoul that South Korea’s intelligence service did not believe the statement of the North Korean leader about the availability of the hydrogen bomb in this country. According to South Korean experts, currently North Korea does not have such high technologies but may conduct research in this area.
