    So it seems like they started talking about it right after the parade - back in April ... It’s somehow not at all fresh news.

    moreover, it’s not clear whether the rocket or dummy was there, I’m somehow not sure that they are really capable of creating something like that now, unless they have sold them either technology or a rocket

    Recall the resolution 1718 of 14 on October 2006 of the year (this resolution is in force) which includes

    Arms embargo
    Nuclear-related embargo
    Ban on the export of luxury goods to the DPRK
    Travel ban
    Asset freeze

    China’s supplies, although they do not directly fall within the scope of the resolution, are still indirectly connected .. I would describe the actions of China, ........ how to annoy the United States.

    The point is not the model, but the fact that China, working with the DPRK, makes another attack against the United States.

    it would be better if the Koreans bought equipment from Bulbash. all the same, it will probably be more reliable.

    Koreans and .Chinese certainly well done that rearm themselves, but I'm afraid during an armed conflict (God forbid, of course) Their technique may not fully meet their expectations, in terms of quality ....
