Jong-nam murder: Police poised to make more arrests, says I-GP

The test of a new high-thrust rocket engine was hailed as a "great leap forward" by North Korea, state media reported Sunday.

North Korea's military has tested a new high-performance rocket engine that its leader is calling a revolutionary breakthrough for the country's space programme.

Kim's announcement came hours before US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met with President Xi Jinping of China - North Korea's only major global ally - in Beijing.

North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests and a series of missile launches and is believed by experts and government officials to be working to develop nuclear-warhead missiles that can reach the United States.

The comments underscored how the contours of the debate over North Korea haven't changed - even though Mr Tillerson's State Department says 20 years of diplomacy to curtail Pyongyang have failed and it's time for a new approach. Juche refers to North Korea's homegrown ideology of self-reliance.

He said the whole world will witness what eventful significance and the great victory we have achieved now.

The test consisted of firing the rocket engine while it was held in place on the ground, not powering a missile. If I do, they may run. but we believe there is an important person too", said Bakar, adding, "I do not deny that there are more North Koreans involved in the murder of Kim Jong-nam. In a stop in Seoul on Friday, Tillerson said that "all options are on the table" for dealing with North Korea and that, while the United States did not want a military confrontation, it would resort to military actions if necessary.

However, he stressed that investigations into the murder case is ongoing, and he said he hopes for the cooperation of Pyongyang in surrendering the four North Korean suspects to assist in investigations. This can make it into a viable engine for an ICBM that Pyongyang has said it will develop to target the US mainland.

However, the regime has reportedly refused to scale down its missiles tests.

This also indicated the engine being tested was likely intended for use in long-range missiles.

Cheong Seong-chang, a senior researcher at the Seong Institute, told the Korea JoongAng Daily that Pyongyang's timing of the engine test was meant to deliver a message to Washington and Beijing, as it coincided with Tillerson's three-nation trip in Northeast Asia.
