[정치]North Korea’s 5th anniversary of ‘completion of nuclear force’ is just around the corner… Should we take out the 7th nuclear test card?

There is a possibility that North Korea will continue to carry out additional large-scale provocations on the 29th, marking the 5th anniversary of its declaration of nuclear force.

As it has recently been widely advertised for successfully test-launching a new intercontinental ballistic missile, the Hwasong-17, there are also observations that it may conduct a nuclear test, the next step.

This is reporter Shin Joon-myeong.

On November 29, 2017, North Korea declared the completion of its nuclear armed forces, claiming that it had successfully test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), the Hwasong-15.

[조선중앙TV / 2017년 11월 29일) : (화성 15형은) 우리가 목표한 로켓 무기체계 개발의 완결단계에 도달한 가장 위력한 대륙간탄도로켓이다.]

After five years, this year, North Korea launched a new ICBM, the Hwasong-17, several times.

In particular, regarding the launch on the 18th, North Korea revealed the appearance of the Hwasong-17 flying and the appearance of Kim Jong-un directing it on the spot.

Along with this, the daughter and wife Ri Sol-ju, presumed to be the second Kim Ju-ae, and the younger sister Kim Yeo-jeong, the vice-director, were widely reported and advertised their achievements.

[조선중앙TV/ 지난 19일 : 김정은 동지께서는 시험발사 성과에 격려하시면서 우리의 핵 무력이 그 어떤 핵 위협도 억제할 수 있는 신뢰할 만한 또 다른 최강의 능력을 확보한 데 대하여 재삼 확인하게 되었다고 말씀하셨습니다.]

North Korea later declared an ultra-strong response to the United Nations, which raised issues with the ICBM launch, by Deputy Director Kim Yeo-jung, and continued to criticize the South Korean government for harsh words.

Accordingly, on the 29th, which will mark the 5th anniversary of the declaration of the completion of nuclear force,

There are observations that it may carry out the 7th nuclear test, which marks the culmination of provocations that have continued since the beginning of this year.

[양무진 / 북한대학원대학교 교수 : 김여정이 두 차례 담화를 발표했고 특히 초강경 대응까지 예고했다는 점에서 오는 29일 핵 무력 완성 5주년을 맞아 7차 핵실험 가능성도 배제할 수 없다고 생각합니다.]

In particular, as China and Russia close their eyes to North Korea’s provocation, there is almost no way to prevent further nuclear tests.

In addition, concerns about additional nuclear tests are rising, with North Korea only sending out criticism of the decision of the three countries to review sanctions against North Korea independently at the level of each country.
