TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Wednesday the nation would make a firm response to North Korea’s challenge against nuclear non-proliferation, calling its latest nuclear test a threat to Japan’s security.

Abe, speaking to reporters, said Japan absolutely could not tolerate North Korea’s nuclear testing.

North Korea said it had successfully conducted a test of a miniaturized hydrogen nuclear device on Wednesday morning.
