the UNITED states must not provoke, if it will spend the last part of the year in peace, says north Korea.

north Korea claims to have carried out a new test at the Sohae facility. It is before been used to launch north Korean satellites.

the Test was carried out on Friday night local time and went well, notify the state north Korean news agency, KCNA.

It is the second test in a week.

The latest test is supposed to be made in order to "further strengthen the strategic atomvåbenafskrækkelse," reported the KCNA.

The knowledge you get out of these tests, must be used to develop strategic weapons that can "suppress the UNITED states'nuclear threats," says a senior north Korean general, a few hours after the test was completed.

General Pak Jong Chon warns north Korea of "hostile forces", including the UNITED states, must refrain from provocations, if they want to spend the end of the year in peace.

The north Korean forces are ready to lead every decision in life that might come from the country's supreme leader, Kim Jong-un, called the further, according to the news agency Reuters.

It is unclear exactly what has been tested the night of Saturday local time. However, according to the KCNA, it was "successful" and an "important test".

Analysts have earlier said that these tests can be used to help north Korea to build better long-range ballistic missiles.

- the Meaning of it apparently is to continue to remind the UNITED states that north Korea still have room for the qualitative progress of the program, says Ankit Panda, an analyst at the Federation of American Scientists, the news agency Reuters.

He adds that some suggest that the test at the Sohae facility was military, since it was North korea's defense college, who came up with the message on the test, and not the north Korean space agency.

North korea's supreme leader Kim Jong-un, agreed last year to close the Sohae facility. The promise he gave during a summit meeting with the president of South korea, Moon Jae-in.

last weekend announced North korea's UN ambassador, that the country will no longer negotiate nuclear disarmament with the UNITED states.

nuclear Disarmament has been central in the american engagement with north Korea over the past two years.

north Korea has warned that the country will choose a "new path" instead of the deadlock in negotiations with the UNITED states.

the UNITED states'special envoy for north Korea, Stephen Biegun, arrive to south Korea on Sunday.
