N. Korea's only saving course is to scrap its nuclear arms

Kim Jong Un's new 'monster' ICBM could pack a punch but only if it survives long enough for North Korea to use

The massive ICBM, the largest ever displayed by North Korea, is likely the "new strategic weapon" promised by the country's leader, Kim Jong Un, at the beginning of the year.

"But the North Koreans did not test any ballistic missiles past year, nor the previous ones", he added. "So the agreement, the understandings, albeit not achieving our ultimate objective in North Korea, has certainly led to reduce risk from the United States versus where we would have been had we continued on the path that the previous administration had engaged in". "That's what [North Korean leader] Kim Jong Un was doing". He thanked North Koreans for their sacrifices.

Due to the triple whammy this year, North Korea failed to complete building the Pyongyang General Hospital and an urban development project in Samjiyon, a former northern county near Mount Baekdu which was made a city last year.

He added at the time that "We're now almost three years into the administration with no visible progress toward getting North Korea to make the strategic decision to stop pursuing deliverable nuclear weapons".

If this is proven, this missile system, according to experts, could penetrate United States defenses.

For North Korea to safely deploy and operate its big liquid-propellant missile, which is carried on a very large 11-axle transporter erector launcher, it would need the support of additional military personnel, fuel trucks, and possibly even a crane to assist with erecting the missile, Hanham said.


Though the ICBM is technically road mobile, it is not as versatile as it may seem.

North Korea has not tested any nuclear or long-range missiles since Kim signed a joint declaration document with Trump at a historic summit in June 2018 in Singapore.

"From a safety perspective, it is undesirable to fuel your missile before you erect it", Hanham explained, "but it's something the North Koreans might choose to do to increase the speed with which they might launch". He is said to be the Supreme Leader of North Korea.

On Saturday 10 October, North Korea celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Workers' Party with a major pre-dawn military parade.

Kim likely has little choice but to focus on maintaining his grip on power until at least next month's US presidential election, North Korea watchers say.

For the party newspaper, North Korea must end the dependence "that hurts our pride and hinders progress and [must] boost production using our own raw materials and resources".
