North Korea is to increase the production of solid-fueled rocket engines and warheads; the country’s leader Kim Jong-un gave respective orders while visiting the Institute of Chemical Materials, KCNA reports.
‘He instructed the institute to produce more solid-fuel rocket engines and rocket warhead tips by further expanding engine production process and the production capacity of rocket warhead tips and engine jets by carbon/carbon compound material,’ reads the message released on the website of the state-run news agency.
Since early 2017, North Korea has been running missile tests and developing the nuclear program. U.S. President Donald Trump threatened Pyongyang with ‘fire and fury’, if the North Korean weaponry targets the United States. In turn, the North Korean army stated they considered landing a missile strike on Guam, where the U.S. military airbase is located. Later, Kim Jong-un refused from that idea.
