Pyongyang: North Korea has tested two railway-borne tactical guided missiles. According to North Korean media, North Korea has tested its third missile this month, despite new US sanctions.
By doing so, North Korea has sent a direct message that it will not be affected by US sanctions. This missile test has intensified the crisis in the Korean Peninsula.
Earlier, North Korea had also tested a ballistic missile on January 6 and January 11, 2022. In September 2021, North Korea also tested a similar missile.
North Korea's communist dictator Kim Jong Un has recently called for an expansion of the country's nuclear weapons program.
North Korea's communist dictator Kim Jong Un is following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather.
Since coming to power, Kim Jong Un has been steadily pursuing his nuclear program. After coming to power, he also tested a nuclear bomb in February 2013. From January 2016 to early 2018, North Korea has tested about 90 missiles.
On the other hand, if we talk about his father and grandfather, less than half of this number of missile tests were conducted during the combined time period of their reign. Kim has made it clear that the United States (US) cannot blackmail North Korea over its nuclear arsenal.
The animosity between North Korea and the United States (US) has deepened since the crushing defeat of the US during its military intervention in the Korean War.
This animosity was first widened by the founder of North Korea and Kim Jong Un's grandfather. After this, his father and now he himself are engaged in widening it.
It is also important to note that there are some fundamental differences between hypersonic missiles and ballistic missiles. One of the differences is its speed and the other is the distance to get out of the Earth's atmosphere.
