– America proposed to impose sanctions on North Korea in the UN Security Council, but Russia vetoed China
Pyongyang, United Nations: North Korea re-tested its hypersonic missile in the Sea of Japan. The test was conducted early this morning (Thursday). Earlier in the first week of this year, the first Test was held on 6 January. This was followed by a ballistic missile test on 11 January. It conducted two more tests on 16 January and its sixth test of its ballistic missile on 8 January.
South Korea has said that its missiles are capable of carrying nuclear weapons.
In response to North Korea’s move, the United States proposed to the United Nations Security Council that it impose tougher sanctions on North Korea. But Russia and China used their veto to blow it up. From this it is now clear that the original communist countries Russia and China have become friends with the hardline communist country North Korea.
The North Korean missile test was reported by US and South Korean intelligence agencies. The United States and South Korea are now analyzing the latest launch, but no specifics are available. However, South Korea has clarified that it was a hypersonic missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.
