The North Korean dictator has once again fired an ICBM into the sea – “to strike fear into enemies”. The test was a reaction to “wild, provocative and aggressive large-scale military exercises” between the US and South Korea.
North Korea sees the latest ICBM test as a warning to the US and South Korea about their joint military exercises. Ruler Kim Jong-un led the raid on Thursday, stressing the need to “instill fear into the enemy,” state media reported Friday. Kim accused the US and South Korea of maintaining open hostility.
According to reports, a test of ICBM type Hwasong-17 Act as a nuclear deterrent. It should also serve as “a strong warning to the enemy”. The missile is the largest ICBM in its arsenal. Intercontinental ballistic missiles, which have a range of more than 5,500 kilometers, are considered the most important means of delivering nuclear weapons. Widely isolated North Korea is barred from testing ICBMs and other ballistic missiles by UN resolutions. The rocket was launched from Pyongyang International Airport and flew over 1,000 kilometers over the sea. It ended up in the target area in the sea between the Korean Peninsula and Japan.
The test was a reaction to “wild, provocative and aggressive major military exercises” between the US and South Korea. Both countries deny allegations that North Korea’s joint maneuvers were in preparation for the attack. A missile test was recorded by South Korea’s military on Thursday, hours before South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol’s visit to Japan began. In Tokyo, Yun and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida called for closer defense cooperation between their countries and the United States.
Tensions on the Korean Peninsula have risen significantly since last year. North Korea has ramped up its missile tests. US and South Korea resume full-scale military exercises
