THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: NoKor successfully designed an ICBM vehicle

According to a US defense magazine, North Korea appears to have succeeded in designing both a re-entry vehicle for the KN-08 intercontinental ballistic missile and a nucler warhead, although it has yet to build them.

Citing recent satellite imagery, NoKor media, and computer analysis, the country's re-entry vehicles may be able to fly straight without losing their balance, while its nuclear waheads appear small and light enough to fit inside the vehicles.

Meanwhile, South Korea issued a warning after facing problems with satellite signal that it appeared to be coming from North Korea. The warning issued at 1930 hours local time in Seoul, Incheon and Gyeonggido, and Gangwondo provinces, came as North Korea discharged a large amount of ECM, causing mobile phones to malfunction and affect planes and ships that rely on GPS navigation. No damage has been reported in the military or among civillians.

Right now, South Korean leader Park Geun-hye is in Washington to attend the Nuclear Security Summit and plans to win international concensus on more effectively implementing sanctions on North Korea's nuclear ambitions. Before the summit, Park said she has a strong conviction that the vision for a nuclear-free world must begin with the Korean peninsula and North Korea would "self-destruct" if it continues to go down this path.
