New reports suggest North Korea is developing a stronger type of nuclear missile.
Weapons experts say Pyongyang is sending a message relaying it’s working on an ICBM more powerful than any it has previously tested.
The reports come after state media published photos of Kim Jong Un standing next to a diagram of a three-stage rocket.
Missile experts say there’s no indication the rocket has been fully developed, but such a weapon could strike all of the U.S. mainland.
Meanwhile, Japan says it will impose additional sanctions on North Korea.
The country’s chief cabinet secretary announced Japan intends to freeze assets of six more North Korean organizations as well as two individuals with ties to Pyongyang and Beijing.
Just this week Kim Jong Un ordered more solid fuel rocket engines.
He’s continuing to pursue his nuclear agenda despite several calls to cease the country’s missile program.
