North Korea has crossed a new nuclear Rubicon — miniaturized warheads.

Analysts with the Defense Intelligence Agency concluded in July that dictator Kim Jong-un has successfully added miniaturized nuclear weapons to his arsenal of of intercontinental ballistic missiles.

The development is likely to further complicate President Trump’s attempts to rein in the rogue police state’s aggressive posture in the region.

Japan’s Defense Ministry has also reached a similar consensus on Kim’s capability.

“It is possible that North Korea has achieved the miniaturization of nuclear weapons and has developed nuclear warheads,” a report released Tuesday reads, The Washington Post reported.

News of the development comes just months after Mr. Trump vowed to “solve” the diplomatic problem for the world if North Korea does not capitulate on its nuclear weapons problem.

“North Korea is looking for trouble,” the president tweeted April 11. “If China decides to help, that would be great. If not, we will solve the problem without them! U.S.A.”
