FILE - In this undated file photo released by the Korean Central News Agency and distributed Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013 in Tokyo by the Korea News Service, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un attends a consultative meeting with officials in the fields of state security and foreign affairs at undisclosed location in North Korea. North Korea said it successfully detonated a miniaturized nuclear device at a northeastern test site Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013, defying U.N. Security Council orders to shut down atomic activity or face more sanctions and international isolation. The nuclear test is North Korea's first since Kim Jong Un took power of a country long estranged from the West. (AP Photo/Korean Central News Agency via Korea News Service, File)
