North Korea has claimed it successfully performed another 'crucial test' at its long-range rocket launch site that would strengthen its 'reliable strategic nuclear deterrent.'

North Korea's Academy of Defense Science did not specify exactly what was tested on Friday. Just days earlier, the North said it conducted a 'very important test' at the site, prompting speculation that it involved a new engine for either a space launch vehicle or an intercontinental ballistic missile.

News of today's test came after US Ambassador Kelly Craft on Wednesday criticised the North's ballistic testing activity during a U.N. Security Council meeting, saying the tests were 'deeply counterproductive' and risk closing the door on prospects for negotiating peace.

While Craft said the Trump administration is 'prepared to be flexible' and take concrete, parallel steps toward an agreement on resuming talks, North Korea described her comments as a 'hostile provocation' and warned that Washington may have squandered its chance at salvaging the fragile nuclear diplomacy.
