    North Korea is capable of equipping missiles with nuclear warheads, Pyongyang declared after its successful nuclear test on Friday, North Korea's Central News Agency (KCNA) reported.

    TOKYO (Sputnik) – The Friday test allowed North Korea to assess the potential of nuclear power and to confirm the features of a "standardized" nuclear warhead that can be mounted on "strategic ballistic rockets," KCNA said on Friday.

    Earlier, Pyongyang officially confirmed having successfully carried out its fifth nuclear test on Friday morning, according to the South Korean Yonhap news agency.
