It is noted that the launch was carried out on the personal order of the leader of the DPRK Kim Jong-un “in response to the hostile policy pursued by Washington.”

“The development of strategic weapons of North Korea are aimed at protecting the sovereignty of the country and territorial integrity from the policy of nuclear blackmail and the nuclear threat from the United States and ensuring the peaceful life of the people,” the government said. This will not pose a threat to any neighboring countries and regions unless the interests of our state are violated.” added the Pyongyang source
