North Korea has announced that it has tested a new solid-fueled hypersonic missile


The North Korean announcement came a day after the South Korean and Japanese militaries reported that the DPRK had fired a missile from a location near the capital Pyongyang in an easterly direction into the sea.

North Korean media reported that Kim Jong-un personally supervised the test. He described the Hwasong-16B missile as a key part of nuclear military deterrence, with the help of which the DPRK intends to face its “enemies”, i.e. the United States, South Korea and Japan.

Kim said North Korea has now developed solid-fuel systems for “all tactical, operational and strategic missiles with various ranges,” North Korea’s official KCNA news agency reported.

In recent years, the DPRK has been focusing on the development of other weapons using solid fuel. These weapons are easier to move and conceal, and can be prepared for launch more quickly than liquid-fueled missiles, which must first be fueled and cannot remain fueled for long periods of time.

North Korea’s Kim Jong Un arrived at the missile test in good spirits.

Last year, North Korea tested a solid-fuel intercontinental ballistic missile for the first time last year, expanding its arsenal of long-range weapons that could hit the mainland United States.

The DPRK also has a range of short- and medium-range solid-fueled missiles that can be launched from vehicles, ships and submarines, potentially capable of hitting targets in South Korea and Japan. In recent months, the North has demonstrated some of these missiles in drills it has described as simulated nuclear strikes, while also threatening nuclear conflict, the AP added.
