Kim Jong Un Offers a Rare Sneak Peek at North Korea’s Weapons Program

SEOUL—North Korea has very long saved its adversaries on their toes with taunting rhetoric and surprise weapons exams.

As President-elect Joe Biden prepares to choose business office, chief Kim Jong Un supplied a sneak peek of Pyongyang’s pipeline of army hardware with unconventional depth all through a scarce Workers’ Celebration Congress meeting that finished this week.

The North is creating army drones, a nuclear-driven submarine and surveillance satellites, Mr. Kim claimed. Missiles will get scaled-down and lighter. Other folks will fly farther.

A hypersonic warhead, which normally can journey a mile per next, is all set for testing and creation, he claimed. The steering know-how for a multi-warhead rocket, presumed to be for an intercontinental ballistic missile, is at its ultimate stage.

At a Thursday night time army parade celebrating the Workers’ Celebration meeting, the North place a host of army hardware on show, like a submarine-released ballistic missile that point out media touted as the “world’s most highly effective weapon.”
