International Military - It is reported at this time that North Korea has confirmed their missile test. Which in this case states that they have carried out testing of a new and powerful type of intercontinental ballistic missile.

Quoted from the Guardian page, this has also marked the end of the moratorium on remote testing. It is known that this test has drawn international criticism, which has been carried out since 2017.

Regarding this trial, Kim Jong Un also directly guided the implementation of the Hwangsong-17 test. As quoted from the 9news page, Kim is seen wearing sunglasses and a leather jacket. He seemed to walk slowly in front of the giant missile gallantly.

The Hwangsong-17 is the largest liquid-fueled missile ever launched. In these trials, the Hwangsong-17 was able to fly as far as 1,090 km to a maximum altitude of 6,248.5 km. Even the results of this test have shown that the missile flies longer and higher than previous tests.

It should also be noted that this new type of missile is the largest intercontinental ballistic missile in North Korea to date. In this regard, Kim Jong Un vowed to continue expanding his “nuclear war deterrent” while preparing for a confrontation with the United States.

Kim Jong Un had indeed ordered to carry out this test, as a result of increasing military tensions around the Korean peninsula. Not only that, this reason is also due to the old inevitable confrontation with the US imperialists as well as the danger of nuclear war.

In a news run by the local government, it was stated that the ballistic missile test had succeeded in becoming a great military muscle.

Even with this, Kim Jong Un said that it was a “Magic” and priceless victory for the Korean people. Of course, the testing carried out by North Korea raises new problems for Joe Biden.

Which he is currently also facing the problem of Russia's invasion of Ukraine since last February. Joe Biden explained that he strongly condemned the launch by North Korea.

"This launch is a bold violation of several UN security council resolutions," he said, adding that the launch would also increase the risk of disrupting the region's security system.
