N. Korea Claims to Have Improved Ballistic Missile Technologies

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has claimed that his country successfully carried out a solid-fuel rocket test to enhance its ballistic missile capabilities.

The North’s state-run Korean Central News Agency(KCNA) reported Thursday that Kim made the comments as he oversaw a ground-based engine and stage separation experiment.

Kim said the test’s success provides a fresh opportunity for improvement in rocket engineering and marks a historic day that would never be forgotten.

The KCNA added that the test aimed to test the North’s indigenous engines’ structural stability, power and thermonuclear abilities. 

Experts said that the North appears to have used solid fuel instead of liquid fuel in its latest rocket tests.
