North Korea conducted exercises with strategic cruise missiles.
North Korea fired four Hwasal-2 missiles into the Sea of Japan. They left from a training camp in the northeastern DPRK city of Kim Chaek.
In Pyongyang, they noted that the missiles flew 2,000 km and hit their targets. As stressed in Pyongyang, these exercises clearly demonstrated the “combat readiness” of North Korea’s nuclear forces.
The South Korean military’s assessment of the missiles’ characteristics differs from Pyongyang’s statements. The ROK and US military are currently analyzing the data.
