North Korea’s rollout over the weekend of an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of targeting the U.S. with a nuclear warhead showed that Pyongyang continues to expand its illegal weapons arsenal despite increased sanctions and diplomatic pressure from the Trump administration.


The communist regime of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un unveiled the road-mobile ICBM during a massive military parade in Pyongyang that U.S. experts said was clearly designed to send a message to Washington and its allies in the region, including South Korea.

朝鲜领导人金正恩(Kim Jong-un)掌控的共产主义政权在平壤举行了大规模阅兵式,并在阅兵期间公开展示了公路机动洲际弹道导弹。据美国专家说,这显然是要向华盛顿以及美国在该地区包括韩国在内的盟友传递一个信号。

“This parade was orchestrated to show that despite the sanctions and hardships, [North Korea] has continued to advance its capabilities across the spectrum, from nuclear weapons and missiles to conventional systems to individual soldier equipment,” said David Maxwell, a former U.S. Special Forces colonel focused on North Korea.

重点关注朝鲜的美国前特种部队上校戴维·麦克斯韦(David Maxwell)表示:“精心策划的阅兵表明,尽管受到制裁和遭遇困境,北朝鲜仍在不断扩大其全方位的军事能力,从核武器和导弹到常规系统再到单兵装备。”

“Most important, it laid the foundation for continued blackmail diplomacy with the South and the U.S.,” said Mr. Maxwell, a senior fellow with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

“最重要的是,此举为继续向南方(韩国)和美国进行勒索外交奠定了基础,”保卫民主基金会(Foundation for Defense of Democracies)高级研究员麦克斯韦先生(Mr. Maxwell)这样说道。

He circulated his comments via email as U.S. officials scrambled to gauge the technical implications of what they had seen over the weekend on North Korean state-controlled TV broadcasts.


The ICBM that rolled through a parade marking the 75th anniversary of the Kim regime’s ruling Workers’ Party appeared to be a significantly ramped-up version of the Hwasong-15 missile that Pyongyang test-launched in 2017.


The ICBM, which had not been shown before in public, was rolled onto a transporter-erector launcher with 11 axles, two more than the Hwasong-15 — also known as the KN-22. It marks the fourth ballistic missile that the North Koreans have developed in a class that also includes the Taepodong, KN-20 and KN-22.


The parade in Pyongyang also showcased the KN-20 and a submarine-launched ballistic missile called the KN-11. The larger, newer ICBM is expected to have a longer range than the others, with a potential capability of flying some 7,000 miles — notably farther than the distance from Pyongyang to Washington.


National security sources have predicted for months that North Korea might use the Workers’ Party anniversary parade for a missile reveal, delivering an “October surprise” to capitalize on perceived policy uncertainty in Washington surrounding the impending U.S. presidential election.
