A TOP US spy boss has revealed fears North Korea could test a nuke or launch a ballistic missile next Tuesday to mark the founding of governing communist party.

Yong Suk Lee, the CIA’s deputy leader of its Korea Mission Centre, reportedly said there was risk because the founding of the Workers’ Party of Korea in 1945 is being celebrated on that day.

North Korea often tests nukes or rockets on key state anniversaries.

This includes the birthdays of those in the ruling Kim dynasty.

Speaking at a CIA conference at The George Washington University, he said: “Stand by your phones.

“North Korea is a political organism that thrives on confrontation.”

Japanese Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera also raised fears of a provocative act on that day which also marks the start of an election campaign in Japan.

Mr Onodera said: “I understand it is an important anniversary for North Korea. We would like to maintain a sense of urgency.”

Earlier in the month, the world awoke to the news North Korea has detonated a nuclear device in a test.

The blast was triggered an artificial earthquake six times larger than any previous test.

North Korea claimed it has developed a sophisticated 120 kiloton hydrogen bomb small enough to be carried on a missile.
