An exhibition on defense opened in North Korea, during which the dictator presented the latest weapons North Korea, including the Hwasong-8 hypersonic missile (tested last month). Hypersonic missiles fly at a very low speed several times greater than the speed of sound, which makes it difficult to shoot them down by anti-missile defense systems.
The exhibition also showed intercontinental ballistic missiles and a new long-range maneuverable missile. US intelligence agencies said they were already analyzing the equipment.
