US Experts: N. Korea Achieved Advancement in ICBM Technology

U.S. experts who have reviewed photos of North Korea's latest intercontinental ballistic missile say the regime has achieved significant technical advancement on its missile program.

CNN on Wednesday quoted Michael Duitsman, a researcher at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies(CNS), as saying that the missile, dubbed Hwasong-15, is not just big for a North Korean missile but big in general. He said not many countries could build a performing missile of that size that works.

After the launch of the missile Wednesday, the North’s official media outlets have claimed it a success, calling it the completion of its national nuclear forces. South Korean military authorities have also assessed the Hwasong-15 is a new type of missile.

CNS researcher David Schmerler also told CNN that the North’s claim should be taken seriously. He said it is likely the launch was conducted with a dummy warhead equivalent in weight to a nuclear bomb.
