Experts say Pyongyang’s latest ICBM isn’t yet a potent threat to the U.S.
SEOUL—North Korea celebrated the recent launch of a powerful intercontinental ballistic missile with the bravado the world has come to expect from Kim Jong Un’s regime.
The North Korean leader described the country’s missiles as “monuments to be passed down to our descendants for generations to come” and promoted more than 100 military officials and scientists involved in missile development. He gave the missile’s launch vehicle the title of national hero and brought his daughter—making her first public appearance—to the test.
