The North Korean government has insisted that it does not maintain a biochemical weapons program, despite new reports that Pyongyang’s military has started testing the use of an anthrax-based weapon on the tip of an intercontinental ballistic missile, APA reports quoting sputniknews.

On Monday, US President Donald Trump sent his first National Security Strategy report to lawmakers. The 56-page unclassified strategy document states that Pyongyang is "pursuing chemical and biological weapons which could also be delivered by missile."

On Tuesday, Bloomberg reported that South Korean intelligence officials have warned North Korea is working on a program to prevent anthrax from disintegrating at the kinds of high temperatures that would be experienced during an ICBM's re-entry of Earth's atmosphere from space.
