North Korea fired its most powerful missile since 2017 on Sunday in a show of force. In a direct challenge to the Biden Administration, North Korea has increased its military activity in recent weeks.
The missile reached a maximum altitude of 1242 miles according to Japan and South Korea. This latest test indicates North Korea is forging ahead with its ballistic missile program.
South Korea rebuked the latest missile test as a violation of UN Security Council Resolutions. So far, the reclusive nation has shown no intent of giving up its nuclear weapons program.
North Korea continues to face crippling economic sanctions with a large portion of the country’s population facing malnourishment.
