North Korea says it ran a”crucial” test on a missile launch website on Friday without specifying exactly what it was.
State media outlet KCNA reported that the evaluation has boosted the nation’s strategic nuclear deterrent.
South Korea’s defense ministry said it had been an engine evaluation.
A prior evaluation in the Sohae Satellite Launching Station was announced only a week on December 7th.
Both evaluations seem to be a provocation because they come ahead of an end of year deadline North Korea has given the United States.
However, the US has up to now refused and it is also not raising brutal sanctions against the communist regime.
