N. Korea is widely suspected of trying to develop miniature nuclear warheads

“We have to stop this sort of nuclear and industrial espionage in Japan as quickly as possible,” Kato said. “In the 1950s, the US hanged Julius and Ethel Rosenberg for being nuclear spies. And now, nuclear weapons are in the hands of the world’s most unpredictable and unstable dictator, who could use them on a whim. It is ridiculous that we have nuclear and industrial spies on the loose in Japan.”
