According to the reports, the 3.4-magnitude natural disaster was detected near North Korea's nuclear test site, where previous tests that resulted in earthquakes have been carried out.

A shallow 3.5-magnitude quake hit North Korea near the country's nuclear test site Saturday, US seismologists said, in what Chinese experts said was a "suspected explosion", but Seoul deemed a "natural earthquake".

Did North Korea test another nuclear bomb?The question is up in the air after an natural disaster was detected to have struck in North Korea today. "In this case we saw none".

The US Geological Survey said it was unable to confirm whether the event was natural.

Beijing has repeatedly expressed concern about the rise of tensions over North Korea and, while it too has signed up for the increasingly tough United Nations sanctions, it has also urged a return to talks and for all parties to exercise restraint.

The latest test was followed by a second magnitude 4.1 quake that experts said could have been caused by landslides or a tunnel collapsing after the explosion.

According to U.S. intelligence sources, the most recent test detonated a 140-kiloton nuclear device, which the North Koreans claim was a hydrogen bomb.

On the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho told reporters Pyongyang might now consider detonating a hydrogen bomb outside its territory.

During the council meeting, speaker after speaker including US allies in Europe and Japan spoke out in support of the 2015 nuclear deal that capped Iran's nuclear program, which President Donald Trump is threatening to scrap.




So-called atmospheric tests of nuclear weapons were banned by the USA, the then-Soviet Union and numerous world's nations in a 1963 treaty, though China conducted the last such test known worldwide in 1980.

Donald Trump has announced even more sanctions on North Korea, this time targeting anyone who does business there.

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho wouldn't have spoken without approval from Pyongyang's top leadership when he suggested to reporters in NY on Friday that the country could conduct an atmospheric hydrogen bomb test to fulfill the vows of the country's leader, Kim Jong Un.

If North Korea attempts an atmospheric nuclear test at sea, it would likely involve its most powerful ballistic missiles, such as the intermediate-range Hwasong-12 or the intercontinental-range Hwasong-14, experts say. Beijing has by most accounts strictly enforced a ban on coal imports from North Korea, raising the chances that it will also stick to the broad restrictions in resolution 2375.

The DMZ is a strip of land that has divided South Korea and North Korea since 1953.

On Friday, China announced it would limit its exports of refined petroleum products to North Korea beginning in October 1 to comply with United Nations resolutions.

A ban on Chinese textile imports will also be implemented in line with the latest UNSC sanctions, a major source of foreign currency for Pyongyang.

The document directed banks to explain to any North Korean customers that "our bank is fulfilling our worldwide obligations and implementing United Nations sanctions against North Korea".
