North Korea to Increase Missile Production amid US Threats

North Korea to Increase Missile Production amid US Threats

North Korea’s leader has ordered the production of more rocket warheads and engines, amid increasing threats from theUnited States.

Alwaght-North Korea’s leader has ordered the production of more rocket warheads and engines, amid increasing threats from United States.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un ordered production to be boosted while inspecting a chemical institute on Wednesday, KCNA state media and Rodong Sinmun reported. He wants the facility “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,” according to North Korean media, citing Kim Jong-un.

The media released photos of Kim visiting the plant and examining the manufacturing process. Some pictures reportedly feature “one or possibly two new missiles”. After analyzing the diagrams hanging on a wall behind the leader, news agencies reported that they were related to the Pukguksong-3 missile, “which appears to be the latest in its Pukguksong, or Polaris, series.” The other rocket “was harder to discern, though it carried a ‘Hwasong,’ or Mars, designation,” analysts said.

The announcement nearly coincided with US President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson praising Pyongyang’s restraint. North Korea has not launched any missiles since two July tests.

I respect the fact that he is starting to respect us,” Trump said, referring to Kim Jong-un. “And maybe – probably not, but maybe – something positive can come about,” he told supporters.

Meanwhile, the US and South Korea are holding massive joint drills – Ulchi-Freedom Guardian – on the Korean Peninsula. Pyongyang has repeatedly warned the US to refrain from any military drills in the region, saying that the maneuvers pose a threat to its security.

Just one day after the drills kicked off, Pyongyang refused to negotiate on its nuclear deterrence, as what it called “an aggressive war scenario” targets North Korea and its leadership, according to North Korean diplomat Ju Yong-сhol, who addressed the UN disarmament forum on Tuesday.

The current tensions on the Korean Peninsula started following increased provocations by the US which includes military drills and deployment of warships and submarines in the region.

Pyongyang insists that developing its military defenses including nuclear weapons is important to counter incessant provocations by the US including a possible nuclear aggression.
