North Korea on Final stage to test long-range missilesTags :
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has announced in his new year’s message that the country is very close to testing long-range missiles that carry the nuclear warheads. He said in a televised speech: “Research and development of cutting edge arms equipment is actively progressing and ICBM rocket test launch preparation is in its last stage." He also said that they were in the last stage of development of the intercontinental ballistic missiles.
The city Pyongyang has conducted two nuclear tests previously, including its biggest one to date.
The country has also claimed of having a series of breakthrough towards its goal of developing a missile that is capable of reaching the US. However, a senior US military official has been reported to have been saying that despite of its ability to put a miniaturized nuclear warhead on a missile, its re-entry technology required for longer range strikers is still a major obstacle in its weapon development.
