North Korea tests new rocket engine: Media
 
(Seoul, march,19,2017):North Korea has tested a new highperformance rocket engine, the country's state media said today.

Overseeing the test, leader Kim JongUn "emphasised that the whole world will soon witness what eventful significance the great victory won today carries", KCNA (Korean Central News Agency) reported, hinting that the North is preparing to launch a new satellite rocket.

"The development and completion of a newtype highthrust engine would help consolidate the scientific and technological foundation to match the worldlevel satellite delivery capability in the field of outer space development, he noted", KCNA said.

Rocket engines are easily repurposed for use in missiles.

Outside observers say that the nucleararmed Pyongyang's space programme is a fig leaf for weapons tests.

The new US Secretary of State Tillerson arrived in Beijing yesterday after visits to US allies Japan and South Korea where he said the US would no longer observe the "failed" approach of patient diplomacy with Pyongyang, warning that American military action against the North was an option "on the table".

The tougher US talk followed two North Korean nuclear tests last year and recent missile launches that Pyongyang described as practice for an attack on US bases in Japan.
