The war of words between the west and the reclusive regime has spiked in recent weeks, and Pyongyang has threatened to carry out a sixth nuclear test that would further inflame tensions.

The allegation was made by the North's ministry of state security and published by state-run media.

North Korea has accused the US and South Korea of plotting to assassinate Kim Jong-Un.

Chinese state media calls for North Korea to dismantle its nuclear program were "a wanton violation of the independent and legitimate rights, dignity and supreme interests" of North Korea and constituted "an undisguised threat to an honest-minded neighboring country which has a long history and tradition of friendship", KCNA said. How North Korea discovered the plot against Kim Jong-Un is unknown, but "in a potential sign of an internal purge, it said the ministry would "ferret out and mercilessly destroy the terrorists".

The U.S. Embassy in Seoul and South Korea's National Intelligence Service were not immediately available for comment. The US is said to be lending its expertise to the plan.

The North claimed that the CIA and IS - South Korea's Intelligence Service - "hatched a vicious plot" targeting Kim while he appeared in public in Pyongyang for ceremonial events.

The report claimed a North Korean citizen was involved in the plot, using "biochemical substances including radioactive substance and nano poisonous substance" to target Kim.
