South Korea’s presidential office has expressed doubts about North Korea’s recent claims regarding the testing of an underwater nuclear weapon system. According to Kim Soo-yeon of the Yonhap news agency, the South Korean government is considering the possibility that North Korea’s assertions are exaggerated and fabricated. North Korea had announced on January 19 that it conducted a significant test involving an underwater nuclear attack drone, the Haeil-5-23, in response to joint naval exercises with South Korea, the United States, and Japan.
