Kim inspected a November 18 test of the Hwasong-17, North Korea’s largest intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), and vowed to resist what he termed U.S. nuclear threats.

North Korea’s “ultimate goal is to possess the world’s most powerful strategic force, the unrivaled force of the century,” Kim said in the order promoting the officers, adding that enhancing the country’s nuclear capabilities would reliably protect the dignity and sovereignty of the state and the people.

He referred to the Hwasong-17 as the “world’s most powerful strategic weapon” and said it highlighted North Korea’s resolve and capacity to someday construct the world’s most powerful army.
