North Korea says it has conducted another hypersonic missile test, under the watch of its leader Kim Jong-un.


New Delhi, 12 January 2022

As per news report of BBC, state media said the missile fired on Tuesday had successfully made a turn before hitting its target in the sea some 1,000km (621 miles) away. It marks North Korea's third reported test of a hypersonic missile, which can avoid detection for longer than ballistic missiles. Mr Kim's presence could indicate the technology has improved, say analysts. The latest ramp-up in testing would appear to support Mr Kim's stated New Years goals, where he vowed to bolster North Korea's defence capabilities. It came as six countries - including the US - issued a joint statement condemning last week's apparent test. urging the North to cease its "destabilising actions" to the region.
