The newly developed high-thrust engine will help the country achieve world-class satellite launch capability, according to the country’s official media service KCNA.
The barbaric leader has claimed the country is close to testing an intercontinental ballistic missile, and news of the rocket engine test indicates North Korea could be close to developing effective long-range missiles.
KCNA reported: “He [Kim] noted that the success made in the current test marked a great event of historic significance as it declared a new birth of the Juche-based rocket industry.”
Juche refers to North Korea’s homegrown ideology.
The state-run media agency added: ”He emphasised that the whole world will soon witness what eventful significance the great victory won today carries.”
