A fifth nuclear test was conducted on Feb. 12, according to the United Nations.

In response to the recent tests, the U.S. and South Korea launched missile defense systems in South Korea and Japan.

The tests come as tensions have escalated on the Korean Peninsula, with the North launching several missiles in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions.

On Saturday, the South Korean military said it detected three projectiles fired from the North, prompting the U and Japan to deploy Patriot antimissile systems in the area.

A total of 10 interceptors are currently stationed in South Korean airspace, South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok told reporters on Saturday.

“The North’s test was a sign that it has mastered the art of making a nuclear missile,” Kim said, adding that the system would help guard against future nuclear strikes.

North Korea conducted its fourth nuclear test on Feb: 11, in defiance the U-N.

The North also said it would conduct an underground nuclear test next week.

The U.K. government said the North was also planning to launch a nuclear warhead, with experts saying it was unlikely the North would achieve a nuclear capability.

“It’s a big gamble, but if it’s done properly, it could be the beginning of a much bigger test,” former British Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander told Sky News.

The United States, which has been pushing to persuade North Korea to end its nuclear weapons program, said it was “deeply concerned” by the launch.

“Our commitment is to work closely with our allies and partners to help ensure that North Korea does not develop or possess nuclear weapons,” U.
