North Korea’s political youth group, the Korean Children’s Union (KCU), demonstrated its patriotism by donating rocket launchers to the army during its 77th anniversary celebrations. High-ranking officials from the North Korean Communist Party attended the event, which comes amid increased efforts by the nation to develop nuclear and conventional weapons.

North Korea has recently intensified its propaganda and public signalling efforts, including rallies featuring the burning effigies of South Korean and American leaders, Reuters reported. The country continues to develop its nuclear and conventional weaponry programme despite defying United Nations Security Council resolutions and launching its largest intercontinental ballistic missile to date in 2023, according to Khaosod.

Last week’s attempt to launch North Korea’s first military satellite sparked widespread criticism. Although the satellite failed and fell into the sea, Kim Yo Jong, the younger sister of the country’s supreme leader Kim Jong Un, declared they would continue to pursue the deployment of military satellites into orbit. A photograph of the new Chollima-1 rocket being launched in Cholsan County on May 31 was released by North Korea’s Korean Central News Agency.

There have been shocking revelations in recent news about North Korea imprisoning a two-year-old for life because their parents possessed a Bible, and Japan revealing that North Korea informed them of plans to launch a satellite, which is suspected to be a cover for developing covert technology.

In another development on North Korea, the country’s missile tests are also intended to pose a significant threat to regional safety and global security in the world. Even though their idea has been widely condemned, the state aims to continue their efforts in pursuing self-defensive measures for their national security. The country’s satellite development has also come to light, with it continuing to improve its scientific developments. To know more about the country’s missile tests, read HERE.
