North Korean state media are reporting that a “very important test took place at the Sohae Satellite launching Ground” on Saturday.
According to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), the test produced a “successful result” and was of “great significance” and that it will “change the strategic position of North Korea in the near the future.”
It was not immediately clear what was tested.
Earlier this month, North Korea warned obliquely it would send the US a “Christmas gift,” but what that present contains will depend on the outcome of ongoing talks between Washington and Pyongyang.
We do not yet know what was tested, or, what the “successful result” of this test means, but it is worth noting that in 2017 North Korea referred to its first test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile as a “gift” and that the North Korean ambassador has said that denuclearization is now “off the table.”
But what about Trump’s “lovely letters” from Kim Jong Un?
This is what happens when you send a failed businessman, a sexual predator, a dimwit and a liar to do a world leader’s job.
