Weapons experts say North Korea’s next provocation
Possibility of multiple warhead-solid fuel ICBM”
The Joe Biden administration is considering North Korea’s hypersonic missile test launch as a violation of UN Security Council resolutions and is considering action. This is a different move from the one that has refrained from responding to North Korea’s previously launched long-range cruise missiles and short-range ballistic missiles while seeking to resume dialogue with North Korea. It seems that they decided that it was impossible to ignore the situation in which North Korea is speeding up the development of strategic weapons that could be a ‘game changer’.
On the 29th (local time), a high-ranking White House official said, “We are analyzing the details of the recent launch,” and said, “We have no new (weapon) ) capability, and condemn the illegal missile launch that causes instability in the region and the international community.” “This launch appears to be in violation of UN Security Council resolutions,” he said. ‘Measures in New York’ refers to the UN Security Council’s response to sanctions violations against North Korea.
A U.S. Department of Defense official also confirmed that an analysis of North Korea’s hypersonic missile is in progress and said, “We will consult closely with our allies in the process of deciding the next steps.” It is noteworthy that the commentary on North Korea’s previously launched long-range cruise missiles and short-range ballistic missiles mentioned the ‘next action’, which was not included in the comments.
“This is a very shocking report,” UN Spokesperson Stephan Dujarric said at a regular briefing on the 29th of last month. do,” he replied. Missile experts warn that North Korea may launch a multiple warhead and solid-fuel intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) following the recently launched hypersonic missile. They are keenly aware of the possibility of additional strategic weapons that North Korea promised to develop at the 8th Party Congress earlier this year. “North Korea has been trying to provoke tensions for years,” said Sydney Syler, a North Korean official at the National Intelligence Service (NIC) affiliated with the US National Intelligence Service (DNI). It aims to attract the attention of the United States and the international community through armed demonstrations or provocations and to get what they want. “North Korea is not strategically seeking to improve relations with South Korea,” he said.
