North Korea shows missiles launched from new submarine


According to reports, North Korea unveiled a new submarine-launched ballistic missile, which the state media described as “the world’s most powerful weapon”.

Kim Jong Un’s parade was inspected on Thursday evening as he watched cavalry, special infantry, artillery and tank rolls through Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang.

The show of power came after a five-year conference of the ruling Workers Party, where Balwan called the US “the main enemy” of his country, the Agence France-Presse said.

Officially the KCNA news agency stated, “The world’s most powerful weapon, the submarine-launched ballistic missile, entered one class after another, could powerfully demonstrate the strength of the revolutionary armed forces”.

Analysts say Pyongyang used military demonstrations to send finely calculated messages of power in an attempt to extract concessions to the incoming US administration.

Biden first called the North Korean leader a “thug” and accused President Trump of doing a spectacle rather than a meaningful check on the North’s nuclear capabilities.

Kim has not ruled out negotiations, but said the fate of bilateral relations depends on whether Washington abandons its hostile policy toward Pyongyang.

Nuclear talks between the US and North Korea have stalled since failing to form an agreement with Kim and Trump held in Vietnam in 2019.
