North Korea cannot 'tip' missile with nuclear warhead - U.S. State Department | Reuters

WASHINGTON North Korea continues to pursue ballistic missile technology but the United States does not believe it is in a position to "tip" one of them with a nuclear warhead, State Department spokesman John Kirby said on Tuesday."We do continue to believe that (North Korean leader Kim Jong Un) continues to pursue both nuclear and ballistic missile technologies. We do not believe that at this point in time he has the capability to tip one of these with a nuclear warhead," Kirby told reporters.

Asked whether he would agree with President-elect Donald Trump's assessment that China was not helping to contain North Korea's nuclear ambitions, Kirby said, "We would not agree with that assessment."
