A new report claims that North Korea’s ballistic missile tests are paying off, and that the DPRK’s arsenal could soon be capable of striking Japan.

On Wednesday, Pyongyang conducted the latest in a series of missile tests, launching a projectile from a submarine in the Sea of Japan. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un called the test a success.

“[North Korea] joined the front rank of the military powers fully equipped with nuclear attack capability,” he said.

A new report, by the US Korea Institute at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at John Hopkins University, appears to agree.

“North Korea conducted what appears to be a successful test of a Bukkeukseong (Polaris-1, KN-11) submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM),” reads the report, posted to 38 North. “This was the third test of the KN-11 this year alone and the most successful to date.”
