Despite the tensions between the United States and North Korea, the US Government is reportedly preparing for all-out nuclear war with Kim Jong-un's regime.

The US has recently begun secretly moving heavy firepowers such as nuclear bombers, fighter jets, and aircraft carriers to the region.

The Express reports: An official told Yonhap news agency: "Artificial quakes from explosions create sound waves, but there were not sound waves detected this time.

”It's also far from North Korea's nuclear test area."

Due to the secretive nature of the hermit state, it is not known how much damage has been caused or whether anyone was hurt in the quake.

After its sixth and largest blast last year, there were a series of tremors and landslides near the Punggye-ri nuclear test site.

The September 3 blast led to a 6.3 magnitude quake, followed by several smaller ones.

Yesterday, Pyongyang condemned the latest US-backed sanctions aimed at curbing Kim’s nuclear ambitions.

The foreign ministry branded them "a manifestation of heinous intention to throw a wet blanket over the inter-Korean exchange and cooperation and to aggravate the situation."

It also said the United States should stop such "anachronistic" policy towards North Korea.

The US announced new sanctions on Wednesday aimed at stopping North Korea's nuclear weapons development and urged China and Russia to expel North Koreans raising funds for the programs.

The US Treasury imposed sanctions on nine entities, 16 people and six North Korean ships it accused of helping the weapons programs.

It said two China-based trading firms were involved in exporting millions of dollars worth of metals and other goods used in weapons production
