US army chief criticises North Korea nuclear facility

The US has said a report that North Korea has built a new nuclear facility is further evidence of Pyongyang's "belligerent behaviour".

Speaking on ABC's This Week, the top US military officer, Adm Mike Mullen, said North Korea was being led by a dictator who wanted to "destabilise for the region".

"The development of nuclear weapons is a huge concern for all of us, those in the region as well as those around the globe," said Adm Mullen.
