North Korea has claimed its new air defense system is capable of intercepting U.S. warplanes and missiles seeking to disarm or destroy the nation's nuclear weapons stockpile.
Axar.az reports citing Newsweek.
Citing previous reports by Sputnik News, Reuters, Sky News, International Business Times and The Japan Times, North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency claimed Wednesday that the country's recently-tested anti-aircraft apparatus possessed the same capabilities as the U.S.'s Patriot and Russia's C-300 missile defense systems. In a commentary entitled "U.S. Can Never Prevent DPRK from Bolstering up Nuclear Capability," the North Korean outlet asserted that Washington's threats to end Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program by military force were empty and that "U.S. strategic bombers and ultramodern stealth fighters can no longer fly over the Korean peninsula at their will."
