North Korea test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile a few days ago. Since then, the country has been said to be trying to test a missile more suitable for a nuclear attack. "North Korea may soon conduct new tests to modernize its arsenal," the state-run news agency said. It will also include the testing of nuclear equipment.
How dangerous will North Korea's new test be?
On Thursday, North Korea, led by Kim Jong Un, tested the Hwasong-17 missile. Kim Jong Un called on the scientists involved in the test and said that more powerful weapons were needed to defend the country. "Only a country with great military might and modern weapons can prevent war, and no other country can control such a country," said Kim Jong Un.
Meanwhile, while the Russia-Ukraine war has created tensions, Kim Jong Un's aggressive stance will add to the world's headaches.
