NORTH KOREA TEST-LAUNCHES ITS ‘LARGEST INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSILE YET
Written by awawa on March 25, 2022
North Korea has launched what is thought to be its largest intercontinental ballistic missile to date in a dramatic return to long-range testing that marks the regime’s most serious provocation for years.
North Korea’s military fired a missile barrage into the Sea of Japan on Thursday in response to the ICBM launch – the first full-range test of Kim Jong-un’s most powerful missiles since 2017. The launch will lead to fears that the North has made significant progress in developing weapons capable of sending nuclear warheads anywhere in the US.
South Korea’s outgoing president, Moon Jae-in, who has made engaging with North Korea a major goal of his administration, said the launch posed a serious threat to the Korean peninsula, the region and the international community and was a clear violation of UN security council resolutions.
