North Korea conducted its fifth and biggest nuclear test Friday and said it had mastered the ability to mount a warhead on a ballistic missile, ratcheting up a threat that rivals and the United Nations have been powerless to contain.The United States said it would work with partners to impose new sanctions, and called on China to use its influence – as North Korea's main ally – to pressure Pyongyang to end its nuclear program.The so-called six-party talks aimed at ending the North's nuclear program involving the United States, Russia, Japan, South Korea, China, and North Korea have been defunct since 2008 .U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States had repeatedly offered talks to North Korea, but Pyongyang had to accept de-nuclearization, which it had refused to do. China says that THAAD is a threat to its own security and will do nothing to bring North Korea back to the negotiating table on its nuclear program.North Korea has been testing different types of missiles at an unprecedented rate this year, and the capability to mount a nuclear warhead on a missile is especially worrisome for its neighbors South Korea and Japan.
