احتدام سباق التسلح بين الكوريتين

By Jordi Bou

September 13, 2021 - إطلاق كوريا الشمالية لصاروخ باليستي آخر يأتي بعد أيام من إجرائها تجربة لإطلاق صاروخ كروز بعيد المدى.

North Korea’s latest tests indicates that the arms race with South Korea is intensifying.

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula rose sharply in 2017, when North Korea successfully tested a new intercontinental ballistic missile able to reach anywhere in U.S.

A series of tit-for-tat weapons buildup between the two Koreas signaled that the rival militaries were arming themselves with increasingly powerful missiles that can fly farther and carry more destructive power, and that are harder to intercept.
