North Korea demonstrated its missile and nuclear power in a night drill
Last night, North Korea displayed the largest number of ballistic missiles capable of carrying a nuclear warhead in a night military exercise on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the establishment of this country's army. It is possible that the ballistic missiles displayed in this exercise have the ability to attack any part of the world.
Afghan Voice Agency (A): Reuters quoted North Korean state media and wrote that Pyongyang displayed more intercontinental ballistic missiles in a military exercise last night.
In this exercise, intercontinental ballistic missiles and other large and important weapons were displayed in Kim Il Sung Square. According to North Korea, these intercontinental ballistic missiles have the maximum nuclear attack capability.
North Korea's "tactical nuclear units" were also present in this exercise to demonstrate the country's "anti-attack and combat deterrence capabilities".
North Korea's official news agency KCNA reported that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, along with Ri Sol-ju, Heseresh and Ju-ae, who is probably his second child, attended the ceremony but did not make any speeches.
North Korea held the recent exercise at the same time as the 75th anniversary of the establishment of its army; A week after he strongly criticized the joint US-South Korean military exercises in the region.
The North Korean Foreign Ministry announced in its strong statement last week that the exercises of the United States of America and its allies in East Asia have brought the situation to the "ultimate limit of the red line". Calling these military exercises "aggressive", the statement considered them a threat that would turn the Korean Peninsula into a "big weapons arsenal and battlefield".
The North Korean officials are referring to the meeting between the American and South Korean defense ministers last week; The meeting in which the parties pledged to expand their military exercises and speed up the joint nuclear deterrence program in order to counter North Korea's weapons development and prevent war.
According to the satellite images of the space technology company "Maxar Technology" based in America, in this exercise, North Korea displayed a group of new ballistic missiles, including its Hwasong-17 intercontinental ballistic missiles, on a mobile launcher.
Although many of these missiles remain unidentified, some observers have raised the possibility that the list of missiles on display may include a solid-fuel missile that North Korea has been working on recently.
Meanwhile, North Korea has increased its efforts to advance its weapons program in response to numerous UN sanctions.
