North Korea boasts new test of engine technology for intercontinental ballistic missile system . . .
North Korea tested a new engine for an intercontinental ballistic missile, according to its state-run news agency.
Reports say that the North Koran leader, Kim Jong Un, ordered the test, which he oversaw at the Sohae Space Center, according to the KCNA.
The news agency quoted Kim as saying, “Now the DPRK can tip new type inter-continental ballistic rockets with more powerful nuclear warheads and keep any cesspool of evils in the earth including the U.S. mainland within our striking range and reduce them to ashes so that they may not survive in our planet.”
KCNA lauded that the latest technology was developed by North Korean scientists in what was called an “eye-catching event which demonstrated our national defense capability before the world.”
