Pyongyang, May 19: North Korea has brought scientists and technicians behind its latest missile launcher in a procession in the streets of Pyongyang, the state news agency reported Friday. Some people started a successful missile missile on Thursday afternoon on Hawsong 12, a medium range missile fired on Sunday, reported by Korea Central News Agency (KCNA)
"Streets of the capital city of Pyongyang were full of festive atmosphere to greet the scientists of national defence," it added. Adults, students and children cheered at a convoy of buses carrying the scientists to Mansu Hill, where they offered flowers to the statues of former leaders Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il before being greeted by the vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, Ri Man-gon, Efe news reported.
North Korea on Sunday launched the Hwasong-12, the projectile that has shown the best performance so far aside from its space rockets, in what the international community suspects to have been a covert missiles test. This missile travels about 800 kilometers and could be more than 4,000 kilometers if it started in a more right angle, experts say. This data points to the progress of the Pyongyang reaching the United States in the development of a continental nuclear missile in the future.
