North Korea Conducts ‘Crucial Test’ for Nuclear Deterrent

December 14, 2019 | Bloomberg

North Korea said it successfully conducted a “crucial” test at a long-range projectile launch site and had boosted its nuclear-deterrent capabilities. It didn’t provide any details about the exercise.

The news follows a North Korean announcement last week that it held a “very important test,” without elaborating. South Korea’s military believes the North tested an engine for its ballistic missiles last Saturday.
