North Korea says it tested ‘Hwasong-18’ solid-fuel ICBM for first time

‘Successful’ test should cause enemies to ‘suffer from fear and anxiety,’ Kim Jong Un says

North Korea test-launched a “Hwasong-18” solid-fuel intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) for the first time on Thursday, according to state media.

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Friday called the launch a “miraculous success” and an improvement on the country’s ability to mount a quick “nuclear counterattack.”
