North Korea recently conducted a test launch of what it called a “strategic cruise missile” from a naval corvette. The test was likely a response to South Korea and the United States’ joint military exercise. The South Korean military has refuted North Korea’s claims, stating that the missile launched was not a strategic one as it did not have a nuclear warhead. Instead, it was likely an anti-ship missile designed for naval warfare scenarios. Experts have differing opinions on the missile’s capabilities, with some saying it could be a long-range cruise missile. However, the South Korean military does not view these missiles as highly threatening due to their limited ranges. It is also worth noting that the newly revealed naval corvette is not a recently built vessel and that the missile launches occurred during the previous week. North Korea’s emphasis on its navy reflects its concerns about the naval capabilities of South Korea, the US, and Japan, especially given their strengthening collaborative efforts.
