Is North Korea has a stock of nuclear bombs.

Technically speaking, North Korea has a nuclear bomb. North Korea has conducted nuclear bomb tests several times. However, in order to carry out a nuclear attack on neighboring countries, North Korea will have to acquire the capability to make missile-laden nuclear weapons. 

North Korea claims that it has made miniatures of nuclear weapons. However, this claim has not been confirmed from any independent source. North Korea claims to have conducted successful nuclear tests in 2006, 2009, 2013 and 2016 in January and September.
North Korea's nuclear plant is believed to be located at a location in a mountainous area near Yongbyon, north of Pyongyang. North Korea, which acquired nuclear technology with the help of Pakistani scientist Abdul Qadir Khan, has 20 to 30 nuclear weapons. Despite all restrictions, North Korea conducted a nuclear test in 2006. 
As of 2020, North Korea managed to take its nuclear weapons tally around 35. While it also has a considerable amount of chemical and biological weapons.
