North Korean scientists and industrial workers are to produce even more nuclear weapons. The country’s leader Kim Jong-un urged them to boost efforts in this direction. According to Reuters, he personally awarded those involved in the development of Hwasong-15, the inter-continental ballistic missile.
‘Kim Jong Un said on Tuesday the scientists and workers would continue manufacturing “more latest weapons and equipment” to “bolster up the nuclear force in quality and quantity”, the North’s central news agency reported on Wednesday’, Reuters wrote.
The North Korean leader also added that the country should produce weapons that are more diverse. According to him, the creation of Hwasong-15 missile, as well as nuclear and hydrogen bombs was a ‘big historical victory’.
Experts mark that North Korean specialists still need to remove certain shortcomings before completing their mission, which is the creation of a ‘missile that can hit the entirety of the United States’.
