North Korea has conducted a test of a new high-trust rocket engine, branding the successful test a breakthrough in the country’s space program.
The development and completion of a new type high performance engine would help the technological foundation to match ‘the world-level satellite’ capability in the field of outer space development.
Pyongyang want to achieve world-class satellite launch science to boost its rocket industry. The test was conducted at the moment the US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson was visiting China. The Chinese FM, Wang Yi called on both sides to exercise rationality and seek a diplomatic solution to the matter.
North Korea has so far conducted five nuclear tests and the necessary missile launches. The UN and EU have already imposed crippling sanctions over its missile and nuclear programs.
Pyongyang says the programs are meant to guarantee security against potential US aggression. The North Korean leader, Kim Yong-un accuses the USA of plotting with regional allies to topple his government.
