North Korea Says It Tested New ‘High-Thrust’ Rocket Engine – NBC News
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un announced the ground test of a “high-thrust” rocket engine, the country’s state-run media said Saturday.
State-run media KCNA said that the rocket engine would help the country’s plans to launch satellites, but in the isolated regime has also in the past conducted nuclear tests and has said it is preparing to test an intercontinental ballistic missile.
Kim Jong Un “emphasized that the whole world will soon witness what eventful significance the great victory won today carries,” KCNA said on its website. He said the test was a “success,” according to the state-run media outlet.
The alleged test was announced on the same day that U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson visited China — which has backed North Korea in a somewhat complex relationship — and a day after Tillerson said that all options to meet North Korea’s weapons programs remained “on the table.”
