A state of worry and uncertainty has engulfed the world as tensions across the US, North Korea, India and China build up.

North Korea, under the dictatorship of Kim Jong-un, has been actively testing nuclear weapons since the start of 2017 despite various warnings and sanctions issued from the West. This has further escalated the existing tensions between the country and the US.

Since 1945, North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests in comparison to US' 1,032.
