‘Our enemies will be afraid!’: North Korea promotes new ICBM in documentary

New footage of 'Hwasong-16' also featured in film recapping military parade and other 75th anniversary events

One month after North Korea revealed its largest-ever intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) at a highly-anticipated military parade, state-run television over the weekend renewed promotion of the new missile in a new documentary film about the Oct. 10 holiday events.

The broadcast comes as state media has yet to give the new missile an official name and has not promoted the development to the same levels as it did after North Korea’s previous largest ICBM, the Hwasong-15, debuted in Nov. 2017.
