By India Today Web Desk: The office of South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol was put on a 24-hour standby on Sunday after officials expected North Korea to conduct its seventh nuclear test. According to Yeonhap, a South Korean news agency, officials said the recent series of missile launches conducted by North Korea is likely a part of the preparations for a nuclear test.

An official told Yonhap that the presidential office is ready with detailed plans to respond to a nuclear test by North Korea. Another official said authorities are working to maintain a “readiness posture with a sense of alertness” and added that the president’s office is on standby as part of a “24-hour readiness regime”.

Tension between the two neighbouring countries has been rising after North Korea launched a series of missiles following a trilateral anti-submarine drill between South Korea, Japan and the US.

US and South Korean officials have been warning for months that North Korea has completed preparations for another nuclear test — which would be the country’s seventh, and first since 2017.
