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

Not all countries agree [in / 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 [exploded / explosion] was too small. A South Korean politician [agree / agreed] . However, both the USA and South Korea said the test was a dangerous [move / movement] by North Korea. Japan wants the UN to act quickly to [took / take] action. Japan's ambassador to the UN said: "The authority and [incredible / credibility] of the UN will be put in question if it does not take these [measures / measured] ." China had strong words for North Korea. Its government said: "We [strong / strongly] encourage North Korea to honour its de-nuclearisation [promises / promised] and to stop taking any action that will make this situation [worsens / worse] ."
