North Korea Missile Test: North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has once again fired a strategic cruise missile. North Korea has fired deadly cruise missiles from underwater submarines. The recent strategic test-fire has been done in protest against the joint military exercise between the US and South Korean forces. The term ‘strategic’ is generally used for missiles that are equipped with nuclear capability.
North Korean state news agency KCNA reported that the system’s reliability was confirmed by the launch of the cruise missile from an underwater submarine, which is part of North Korea’s modernization policy. North Korea, this is not the first time that this kind of testing has been done while showing eye to America. In the month of February, dictator Kim had tested the short range intercontinental ballistic missile. Kim has tested dozens of such missiles.
South Korean army was on alert
The South Korea Joint Chief of Staff (JCS) said that the South Korean army was already on alert and the country’s intelligence agency was constantly working with US officials. After the missile test firing, South Korean JCS said that now they are analyzing it in detail.
US-South Korean joint military exercise
An 11-day military exercise between the South Korean army and the US military named ‘Freedom Shield 2023’ was to begin from Monday, when North Korea fired a strategic cruise missile. This type of exercise was to be held for the first time after 2017, with the aim of preparing a joint security posture. It has been said in the joint statement of both the armies that during this time the focus will be on field exercises and landing and how to fight the war jointly.
