Regarding the possible launch date, the media did not mention it.

North Korea‘s leader gave the signal last month and it was announced that construction of the satellite had been completed.

The announcement comes nearly a week after Pyongyang test-fired a new solid-fuel intercontinental ballistic missile, a major milestone for its banned weapons programs.

Analysts have claimed that the ICBM’s development and space launch capabilities share a substantial amount of technology.

On Tuesday, Kim inspected military spy satellite No. 1, which has been prepared for loading after passing a final General Assembly inspection and space environment test.

This was done after he familiarized himself with the work of the committee.

A military satellite was one of the key defense initiatives that Kim outlined in the 2021 plan to improve and increase the country’s military power.
