North Korea is developing its nuclear weapons capabilities

 This was emphasized by leader Kim Jong-Un during a high-level military parade in Pyongyang, to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army (Kpra). "We will continue - Kim told the official KCNA agency - to take steps to strengthen and develop our country's nuclear capabilities more rapidly." 

"If any power tries to usurp the fundamental interests of our country, our nuclear powers will have no choice but to carry out a second, preventive mission," assured the leader in a threatening tone, referring to attacks against real threats. KCNA also reported that the most advanced weaponry was displayed during the parade, including the powerful Hwasong-17, an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that North Korea claims was successfully tested on March 24, which was the first launch of its missile. good since 2017. 

"The audience gave a standing ovation, excited to see the gigantic Hwasong-17 ICBM flying into the sky on March 24", reports KCNA, on an aircraft carrier believed to be able to reach any part of US territory, even carrying atomic warheads. The Hwansong-17, known to analysts as the 'terrible missile', was the flagship of the fight which saw a "tactical missile" unit, a tank, a "strategic missile" column, a "super-large Icbm" column capable of "consecutive hits" and other operators. 

March's trial of the Hwasong-17, conducted under Kim's supervision, was presented as a "magic" launch accompanied by the spread of photos and videos in Hollywood fashion, with the leader playing Top Gun leading the operation to a promise with history.

 In contrast, for American and South Korean intelligence services, the tests used the Hwasong-15, a less sophisticated ballistic missile that was tested in 2017. Rodong Sinmun, the voice of the Labor Party, posted photos of the march including photos of the Hwasong-17, mounted on a large 11-axle transport vehicle.
