La carrera armamentista se caldea en la península coreana

September 13, 2021 - Corea del Norte lanzó un par de misiles balísticos desde su costa oriental, según informes del ejército de Corea del Sur, aumentando las tensiones regionales solo días después haber probado un misil crucero con posibles capacidades nucleares.

The test of a new long-range cruise missile is seen by analysts as possibly the country’s first such weapon with a nuclear capability.

The weekend tests saw missiles travelling up to 1,500km before hitting their targets and falling into the country's territorial waters, the official KCNA news agency said.

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.
