North Korea has 13 types of pathogens that can be weaponized, which includes anthrax and clostridium botulinum, according to a 2016 report by the Korean Institute for Defence Analyses.

"North Korea-a country that starves its own people-has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons that could threaten our homeland", the document states.

The North Korean regime has started tests with a view to loading intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) with anthrax, according to regional media reports. "And the US itself is an empire of evils full of plots, fabrications, lies and deceptions".

This undated picture released from North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on May 22, 2017 shows North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un (C) inspecting the test-fire of a ground-to-ground medium-to-long range strategic ballistic missile Pukguksong-2.

The North was also thought to be among the world's largest possessors of chemical weapons, ranking third after the United States and Russian Federation, according to the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI), a non-profit organization aiming at protecting lives and the environment from nuclear, biological, radiological, chemical, and cyber dangers.

North Korea claimed it had completed its nuclear force after it fired a new Hwasong-15 ICBM in late November.

The report said the testing involves ensuring anthrax survives the vast temperatures generated during re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere.
