“Most powerful weapon in the world”
North Korea unveils new missile at parade
Saber rattles from North Korea: On the occasion of the congress of the ruling Workers’ Party, the North Korean military presented a new ballistic missile in the capital Pyongyang. Experts see the demonstration as a signal to the future US President Biden.
A new ballistic missile was demonstrated at a military parade in North Korea. As reported by North Korean state media, the missile displayed in the presence of ruler Kim Jong Un can be fired from submarines. The parade in Pyongyang took place on the occasion of the ruling Labor Party Congress, at which Kim announced an expansion of the North Korean nuclear arsenal and described the US as the country’s “greatest enemy”.
The state news agency KCNA described the new missile as the “most powerful weapon in the world”. With it “powerfully the power” of the North Korean armed forces was demonstrated. The missile is able to “annihilate enemies in a preventive manner outside the territory”. This choice of words suggests that the range of the missile might extend beyond the Korean peninsula and at least as far as Japan.
The launch of the rocket can be interpreted as a show of strength in the direction of the new US President Joe Biden, who will be inducted into office on Wednesday. The US has 28,500 troops stationed in South Korea and a significant military presence in Japan.
Kim called Biden a “mad dog”
According to experts, Kim could try to obtain concessions from Biden with his signals of conflict readiness. The North Korean economy is suffering severely from the international sanctions in place against the country because of the nuclear and missile program. The economic problems are exacerbated by the foreclosure measures that the country imposed on itself during the corona pandemic.
In recent years, Kim had relied on rapprochement with US President Donald Trump in order to have sanctions lifted. Both leaders met three times in person. However, the last summit between Trump and Kim in Hanoi in February 2019 failed. Since then, the negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang to dismantle the North Korean nuclear program have been on hold. Tensions between North and South Korea also intensified again.
The North Korean ruler had sharply attacked Biden in the past. Among other things, Kim called the former US Vice President a “mad dog”. Biden, in turn, referred to Kim as a “criminal” during the US presidential campaign.
