2018 Winter Olympics: North Korea Agrees To Send Delegation to South Korea After High-Level Meeting
Washington, October 17: In last nine months, the secretive communist regime of North Korea has conducted 15 tests, most of which have been successful.
These tests include firing a missile over Japan and reportedly conducting a nuclear test in September which caused tremors across the border in China.
Most of the experts now believe that the regime headed by 23-year-old dictator Kim Jong Un now has a potential to hit New York with a “hell of a missile”, quite concerning information giving Donald Trump’s unwillingness to back down from their growing dispute.
As each day stories emerge about North Korea’s arsenal and capabilities, the question arises is North Korea really able to launch a missile at the United States, UK and rest of the Europe.
