North Korea has once again created a sensation by conducting a rapid test of long-range state-of-the-art missiles.News agency ANI has given this information quoting North Korea's state media KCNA.These tests have been done at a time when the Taliban has returned to Afghanistan and the US has had to return from there.North Korea's move is also worth noting because the long-running standoff over nuclear disarmament with the United States does not seem to end.
North Korea test-fires "newly-developed new-type long-range cruise missiles", says its state media KCNA— ANI (@ANI) September 12, 2021
During the tests on Saturday and Sunday, the missiles covered a range of 1,500 kilometers (930 miles) before hitting their target, Reuters news agency reported.The KCNA has said that the development of the missiles guarantees to make North Korea's security more reliable.The long-range missiles manufactured in the country provide the strategic importance of having an effective deterrence tool even to strongly deter the military maneuvers of hostile forces.
It is noteworthy that North Korea has long accused the United States and South Korea of a policy hostile towards Pyongyang.Its talks with the US aimed at ending North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs have been stalled since 2019.Experts say that testing missiles is part of a well-thought-out strategy of North Korea.He has also been conducting such tests to pressure the US for talks in order to end the international sanctions imposed on himself.
Recently, the United Nations Nuclear Agency said that North Korea appears to have resumed operations of its main nuclear reactor to produce atomic fuel.The International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) annual report said this was about a five-megawatt reactor at North Korea's main nuclear complex in Yongbyon, northern Pyongyang.The news agency AP said in its report that the reactor produces plutonium which can be used to make nuclear weapons.
