North Korea says it test-fired new anti-aircraft missile

North Korea said, it test-fired a new anti-aircraft missile yesterday, its fourth weapons test in under a month. The latest test comes days after North Korea launched a new hypersonic missile which is believed to have nuclear capabilities. US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said, the tests create greater prospects for instability and insecurity.

While Pyongyang said, its weapons are needed for self-defence, accusing the US and South Korea of double standards. The latest tests are being seen as a clear sign that Pyongyang has no intentions on slowing down its weapons development despite strict sanctions. According to State news outlet KCNA, the new anti-aircraft missile showed remarkable combat performance and also included new key technologies.

The test came a day after North Korean leader Kim Jong-un extended a conditional olive branch towards the South, saying he wanted to restore a vital communication hotline between them.
