Details: The South Korean military evaluates the range of intercontinental missiles launched by North Korea to cover the entire United States Yonhap News Agency, Seoul, November 18th. The South Korean army and experts generally commented on the 18th that the "Hwasong-17" intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launched by North Korea on the same day can cover the entire territory of the United States. North Korea's missile technology has made considerable progress. Based on this, it is speculated that the possibility of North Korea's seventh nuclear test has further increased. South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (Joint Staff) stated on the 18th that North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) into the eastern sea at about 10:15 am on the same day in the Sun'an area of Pyongyang City. Its missiles shoot at an altitude of about 6,100 kilometers, have a flight distance of about 1,000 kilometers, and a flight speed of about Mach 22. According to analysis, this missile is the same type as the "Hwasong-17" launched by North Korea on the 3rd of this month. In view of the specific parameters released by the Korean Army, its range can reach 15,000 kilometers, and its strike range covers the entire territory of the United States. It is worth noting that the "Hwasong-17" uses a multi-warhead independently guided vehicle (MIRV). Once the warhead separation is successfully completed over the target, it can simultaneously strike Washington and New York. Since it was first made public in October 2020, it is the first time that the "Hwasong-17" has achieved results like today. The same type of missile launched by North Korea on the 3rd had an altitude of 1,920 kilometers, a range of 760 kilometers, and a flight speed of Mach 15. Although the separation between the stages was completed, it failed to fly normally and ended in failure. According to analysis, North Korea launched another intercontinental ballistic missile 15 days later, which may be intended to protest against the deepening of security cooperation between South Korea, the United States and Japan, and to recover from the previous failure, while consolidating its threatened status as a "nuclear state". In addition, under the circumstances that the South Korean and US Defense Departments officially launched the "Missile Policy Consultative Mechanism" (CMWG) that day, North Korea's projectile behavior can be regarded as an expression of the will to "tit for tat". Based on this, it is speculated that North Korea may carry out its seventh nuclear test in the near future, and the possibility of South Korea, the United States and Japan trying to impose sanctions on North Korea at the level of the UN Security Council will also increase accordingly. At the National Security Council (NSC) Standing Committee meeting on the same day, President Yin Xiyue instructed various departments to strengthen the implementation of extended deterrence against North Korea and strive for the international community to increase sanctions against North Korea. US National Security Council spokeswoman Adrienne Watson issued a statement saying that the US strongly condemns North Korea's test of a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile. The US will take all necessary measures to ensure the security of the US mainland, its allies South Korea and Japan. In addition, since the beginning of this year, North Korea has launched a total of 35 intercontinental ballistic missiles and 3 cruise missiles, 25 times since the establishment of the Yun Xiyue government.
