The United Nations Security Council says it will "begin to work " to take against North Korea. The UN believes a nuclear test that North Korea carried out on Wednesday could be a bomb. This was the fourth since 2006 that North Korea has tested a nuclear bomb, but it could be the time it has tested a hydrogen bomb. A hydrogen bomb is a lot more than the atomic bombs dropped on Japan during World War II. The UN said of North Korea's test that: "A threat to international peace and continues to exist." However, the UN has not said what action it would take against North Korea, nor when any would be put in .

Not all agree on what to do about North Korea's latest nuclear test. The USA said it does not think the test was a hydrogen bomb because the was too . A South Korean politician agreed. However, both the USA and South Korea said the test was a move by North Korea. Japan wants the UN to act to take action. Japan's to the UN said: "The authority and credibility of the [UN] will be put in if it does not take these measures." China had strong words for North Korea. Its said: "We strongly encourage North Korea to honour its de-nuclearisation and to stop taking any action that will make this worse."
