“Another significant test was conducted at the Sohe cosmodrome,” the DPRK Academy of Defense Sciences said in a statement.

It is noted that the "latest scientific research achievements" of the DPRK in the field of defense will be used to strengthen the strategic forces of North Korea with the goal of "deterring a nuclear war."

Earlier, Russian Ambassador to the UN Vasily Nebenzya called on the DPRK to refrain from new missile tests.
