Mass media: North Korea simulated a tactical nuclear attack by firing cruise missiles with fake warheads
The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea) simulated a tactical nuclear attack. The test involved two long-range cruise missiles with fake warheads.
North Korea's propaganda media said the test was aimed at "warning its enemies" of the country's readiness for nuclear war. This was reported by Reuters.
North Korea's military leadership vowed to "strengthen military deterrence against Washington and Seoul" in a simulated nuclear war. Two cruise missiles with fake nuclear warheads were fired toward the Yellow Sea and flew 1,500 kilometers at an altitude of 150 meters.
South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said that the imitation of a tactical nuclear attack by the DPRK is an act of hostility that threatens peace on the Korean Peninsula.
In turn, the North Korean Foreign Ministry accused Japan of raising tensions in the region by developing long-range missiles, but he did not mention the missile launch with a fake warhead. At the same time, the DPRK called the missile training a "rehearsal for war."
North Korea also protested the deployment of US strategic bombers, firing two ballistic missiles in "protest".
Japan and the US are expected to agree to jointly develop an interceptor missile to counter hypersonic warheads developed by China, Russia and North Korea.
In addition, Seoul announced sanctions against five North Korean citizens and one company in response to Pyongyang's launch of a space rocket last month.
The Defense Minister of the terrorist state of Russia Sergei Shoigu visited an exhibition of military equipment in the North Korean capital Pyongyang in July. Together with the head of North Korea Kim Jong-un, the Russian war criminal inspected nuclear ballistic missiles, which were banned by UN Security Council resolutions.
Earlier it was reported that a Russian military plane flew to Pyongyang a few days after the meeting between Russian Defense Minister Shoigu and North Korean leader Kim Jong-in. Analysts speculated that the leaders agreed on armed cooperation.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the United States has received information that Russia and the DPRK are increasing military-technical cooperation. They have "seriously advanced" in the issue of supplying weapons that Moscow plans to use in the war against Ukraine.
