Kim Jong Un Offers a Rare Sneak Peek at North Korea’s Weapons Program

SEOUL—North Korea has very long saved its adversaries on their toes with taunting rhetoric and surprise weapons exams.

As President-elect Joe Biden prepares to choose business office, chief Kim Jong Un supplied a sneak peek of Pyongyang’s pipeline of army hardware with unconventional depth all through a scarce Workers’ Celebration Congress meeting that finished this week.

The North is creating army drones, a nuclear-driven submarine and surveillance satellites, Mr. Kim claimed. Missiles will get scaled-down and lighter. Other folks will fly farther.

A hypersonic warhead, which normally can journey a mile per next, is all set for testing and creation, he claimed. The steering know-how for a multi-warhead rocket, presumed to be for an intercontinental ballistic missile, is at its ultimate stage. It is clear that the weapon buying program of N. Korea is much complex than those of other countries. It is just like buying rocket launcher when the need is only to purchase AR-15 magazines.

At a Thursday night time army parade celebrating the Workers’ Celebration meeting, the North place a host of army hardware on show, like a submarine-released ballistic missile that point out media touted as the “world’s most highly effective weapon.”
