North Korea creates germ sprays and poison pens that can spread deadly diseases such as smallpox and anthrax.

This information was reported by The Sun, citing US intelligence, URA-Inform reports.

In particular, the US State Department report states that the DPRK has a targeted offensive biological weapons program at the national level.  It also has the technical ability to produce bacteria, viruses and toxins that can be used as biological agents for military purposes.

«Pyongyang is likely capable of arming chemical warfare agents with unconventional systems, such as sprayers and poison pen injection devices, which have been deployed by the DPRK to deliver chemical weapons and could be used for covert delivery of chemical warfare agents»,« 8212; the report says.

Several US State Department experts who monitor foreign governments' compliance with weapons regulations have warned that biological weapons could be more dangerous than nuclear weapons.

US intelligence has determined that North Korea has had biological weapons in its arsenal since the 1960s and that North Korea is more likely to use biological weapons than nuclear weapons.

The Sun writes that the biggest concern is that North Korea has the industrial capacity to mass produce these weapons and then spread them through missiles, drones, aircraft and spray guns.

«While nuclear programs can be tracked by the number of nuclear tests and success missile testing, weapons creation and the cultivation of pathogenic microorganisms can remain invisible behind closed doors. Moreover, equipment used to produce biological weapons is often dual-purpose for agriculture, making external monitoring and verification virtually impossible, the US State Department report says.

We recall that it was previously reported that Ukraine could cross Putin’s nuclear “red line”: the media reported details.
