North Korea tests new ‘Ultramodern Tactical weapon’ despite denuclearisation promises; strong reaction expected from US
Seoul – After assurances of stopping the development of nuclear weapons and missiles, North Korea has now announced to have tested an ultramodern tactical weapon. The weapon was tested in the presence of the Supreme Leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un. The North Korean regime has claimed that the tactical weapons would prove to be a ‘wall of steel’ for the nation. A few days ago, US think tank had alleged that the North Korean underground missile bases were still operational.

During his election campaign, Donald Trump had announced that he would recall the military from Afghanistan if he was elected as the President. Nevertheless, after coming to power, Trump had to change his stance. He said that the picture appears different from the President’s office and that he had accepted the inevitability of the Afghanistan war against terrorists. After that, the US military increased the scope of their operations in the fight against the Taliban in Afghanistan. Even so, a significant rise in the incidents of the Taliban targeting the Afghani military and security agencies was also observed in the same period.
