As tensions between the US and North Korea continue to escalate, leader Kim Jong Un threatens to reduce America “to ashes” if “even a single bullet” from Washington is fired toward Pyongyang.
South Korean deputy defense ministry spokesman Lee Jin-woo said,”Through this test, it is found that engine function has made meaningful progress but further analysis is needed for exact thrust and possible uses.”
When asked about a US response to North Korean provocation during a meeting in Tokyo last week, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson refused to rule out military action, remarking that the “policy of strategic patience” with Pyongyang was over.
The test took place at Sohae Satellite Launching Ground as Kim Jong Un kept watch. Photos released afterward showed the leader with a broad grin looking very pleased with the results.
Despite United Nation sanctions and calls for denuclearization worldwide, North Korea has conducted 5 nuclear tests and a number of missile launches, with some government officials and experts believing that the DPRK (Democratic Republic of Korea) is drawing dangerously close to developing a rocket capable of striking the US.
