DPRK’s short-range systems: understanding the threat of North Korea's new missiles on the Peninsula

Web conference

Date: January 17, 2023 from 14:30 to 15:15


FRS is pleased to invite you to its webinar: DPRK’s short-range systems: understanding the threat of North Korea's new missiles on the Peninsula, which will be held online on Tuesday, January 17, from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm (CET).

North Korea’s recent flurry of missile tests, in particular of short-range missiles, has put the spotlight on its efforts to develop new capabilities in this range and to replace Soviet-inherited weapons with modern and accurate systems. In particular, the development of the KN-23, the KN-24 and the KN-25 is bound to be significant in Pyongyang’s capabilities and strategy.

This webinar will explore the findings of a new study published by FRS and will focus on the recently introduced systems. It will assess their potential impact as conventional and non-conventional weapons. Through an analysis of the potential capacities of these systems, the panelists will examine their consequences on North Korea's strategy and explore what it may lead to, in military and political terms, on the Korean peninsula.
