North Korea announced today that it has retested its nuclear submarine drone able to generate radioactive tsunamis, and affirmed that it has verified the reliability of the system and its “deadly” attack capacity.

Pyongyang tested its baptized weapon “Haeil-2” (Tsunami-2 in Korean) between April 4 and 7, as reported this Saturday by the North Korean state agency KCNAin a new weapons test that coincides with the great military maneuvers that Seoul and Washington are carrying out these days on the Korean peninsula.

Is about the third test announced by the Kim Jong-un regime since last March 24 he reported for the first time the existence of this new type of weapon, which he called “Haeil-1” in those previous tests.

This nuclear submarine attack drone can be deployed on any coast and port or towed by a surface ship for operation.said the KCNA after the first test.

According to this agency, the weapon began to be developed in 2012 and, after subjecting it to 50 tests of different types (29 of which were attended by Kim Jong-un), its operational deployment was decided in the past plenary session of the Workers’ Party held in December of last year.

The diplomatic envoys for nuclear affairs of South Korea, Japan and the US they asked the international community to repatriate the North Korean workers abroad in order to reduce the sending remittances which are used to finance the weapons of mass destruction program of the dictatorship of Kim Jong-un.

The three envoys, the South Korean Kim Gunnthe Japanese Takehiro Funakoshi and the american sung kim issued a statement at the end of their trilateral meeting in Seoul condemning the repeated launches of regime ballistic missiles “as well as his destabilizing and escalating rhetoric related to the use of nuclear weapons”.

The meeting comes just 10 days after the North Korean dictator inspected tactical nuclear warheads, a type of weapon that in Pyongyang had never exhibited before and that North Korea is committed to improving its short range atomic weapons for potential use against South Korea or neighboring countries like Japan.

In the statement, the three diplomats highlighted “that according to the resolution of the UN Security Council 2397 of 2017 Member States must repatriate all workers from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (official North Korean name) that are generating revenue in their jurisdictions.”

The text “deplores the human rights violation” which supposes the diversion of the income of these workers to finance the nuclear and missile program and affects not only workers who perform physical labor (usually in sectors such as lumber or construction) but also the growing number of North Korean communications engineers winning contracts under false nationalities.
