North Korea successfully tests nuclear-capable cruise missile
Pyongyang: North Korea has successfully tested the country’s first nuclear-capable strategic cruise missile.
According to the International News Agency, North Korea has tested the country’s first nuclear-capable cruise missile with a range of 1,500 km on the high seas. The missile successfully hit its target.
North Korean state television has claimed that the test of the cruise missile could more effectively guarantee the security of our state and deter enemy activity.
One reason for North Korea’s growing interest in developing cruise missiles is the ban on ballistic missiles under UN Security Council resolutions.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. He said that making small bombs is the first goal.
Ankit Panda, a senior official at the US-based Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said it would be the first cruise missile in North Korea to be tested as a “strategic” role.
The latest test highlights steady progress in Pyongyang’s weapons program aimed at dismantling North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs to ease US sanctions, but talks have stalled since 2019.
North Korea tested a new tactical short-range ballistic missile in March, and a cruise missile just hours after US President Joe Biden took office in late January.
