North Korea says latest missile launch demonstrates its ‘powerful physical nuclear deterrent’

North Korea claims its latest intercontinental missile (ICBM), test has demonstrated its “powerful nuclear deterrent” as well as its attempts to “turn its nuclear counterattack capability on hostile forces.”

According to Toshiro Ino, Tokyo’s vice-minister of defense, the Hwasong-15 missile launched from Pyongyang’s international airport on Saturday crashed into the Sea of Japan approximately 125 miles (201 km) west of northwestern Oshima Island.

North Korea claimed that the missile launch was in response to US and South Korean military drills scheduled for next month.

Hwasong-15’s launch showed the North’s “powerful nuclear deterrent” as well as its attempts to “turn its capability of fatal nuclear counterattack against the hostile forces into an extremely strong one that cannot been countered,” KCNA, North Korea’s state news agency said.


Kim Yo Jong, the sister of Leader Kim Jong Un, also stated on Sunday that she would be watching every movement of the enemy to take appropriate and powerful counteractions against every move hostile.

The USA responded by flying supersonic bombers long-range and in response to the test.

US B-1B bombers, and other aircraft, are separately trained with South Korean fighter jets and Japanese bombers over and near the Korean Peninsula.

According to a South Korean military statement, Sunday’s training was a confirmation of Washington’s “iron-clad security commitment” to South Korea.

UN Security Council resolutions banned North Korea’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.

However, North Korea claims that its weapons are necessary to counter the US’s “hostile policies”.

After South Korea announced a series military drills in the coming months, North Korea promised “unprecedentedly strong action” against “arch-criminal states.

Kim Jong Un was present at a massive military parade in Pyongyang last Wednesday, where troops rolled out more ICBMs than a dozen.
