LABOR leader Bill Shorten will travel to South Korea today to meet with senior government officials as Washington and Pyongyang ramp up talk of military threats.
Just days after North Korea threatened to detonate a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean, Mr Shorten and Opposition foreign affairs spokeswoman Penny Wong will hold talks with South Korean Prime ter Julie Bishop used her address to the United Nations General Assembly to slam North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
“North Korea is the only state that is currently testing nuclear weapons and is the only state to do so this century,” Ms Bishop said.
Tensions have mounted after Pyongyang tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles, a hydrogen bomb and shot ballistic missiles over Japan.
