North Korea conducts another hypersonic missile test
Written by News Room on January 12, 2022
North Korea says it has conducted another hypersonic missile test, under the watch of its leader Kim Jong-un.
State media said the missile fired on Tuesday had successfully made a turn before hitting its target in the sea some 1,000 kilometers away.
Report says that this marks North Korea’s third reported test of a hypersonic missile, which can avoid detection for longer than ballistic missiles.
The latest increase in testing would appear to support Mr. Kim’s stated New Year’s goals, where he vowed to strengthen North Korea’s defence capabilities.
