As it became known, North Korea conducted the first test of an intercontinental ballistic missile on Tuesday. This event is a confident step in the creation of nuclear weapons. According to the government of the country, this missile is capable of inflicting a powerful blow to the United States. North Korea launched the ballistic missile for 37 minutes and this is an excellent indicator. According to experts, this time would be enough that the missile flew 4,000 miles and struck at Alaska. It is worth noting that earlier the US authorities assumed the creation of South Korea’s medium-range missiles. And as it turned out, this rocket is ballistic. But there isn’t any accurate data that this missile isn’t an intercontinental ballistic missile. Scientists and representatives of the countries of South Korea and Japan are currently studying the documents to determine to which class a new development should be attributed. According to the military, the missile was launched from the Banghyon airfield. This airfield is in the north-western part of the country, namely in the city of Kusong.
Several resolutions signed by the United Nations Security Council prohibit such actions. To be more precise, South Korea has no right to create and test ballistic missiles. Meanwhile, the country has made significant progress in the creation of military weapons. But experts say that it takes a long time to adapt the nuclear warheads for intercontinental ballistic missiles. First of all, they need to be minimized and the correct size is chosen. For this you need to go a long and hard way.
This event dashed many efforts by the President of the United States to preserve peace. Donald Trump for some time tried to stop South Korea in the quest to create and test nuclear weapons. But as time shows, all efforts are in vain. In a recent telephone conversation between the heads of state of China and the United States, Trump announced full readiness. According to Donald Trump, the United States is ready to resist South Korea without external assistance. Also, according to experts, this rocket is quite impressive size and may be aimed at New York. Meanwhile, analysts said that such an assumption is erroneous. It is quite clear that the northern country was able to achieve success in creating nuclear weapons in a short time. North Korea launched the ballistic missile, which once again confirms the level of professionalism of scientists and military. But it takes a long time before the rocket takes action. First of all, South Korea has not mastered the technology of creating a ballistic missile with nuclear tips. Therefore, at the moment the missile does not pose a danger to the world.
