North Korea claims spy satellite took photos of White House, Pentagon

North Korea has intensified its pressure campaign towards the United States, claiming that its illegal satellite, which breached a United Nations Security Council resolution, successfully captured images of significant U.S. locations, including the White House. North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un thoroughly reviewed the “photographs of the White House, the Pentagon, and other targets in Washington D.C.,” taken by its newly-launched satellite at around 11:35 pm Pyongyang time Monday, according to the North’s official Rodong Sinmun.The state-run newspaper said on Tuesday that the satellite also captured images of U.S. military bases including the Naval Station Norfolk, the Newport News Shipyard, and the surrounding airport area – highlighting it surveilled four U.S. Navy nuclear aircraft carriers and a British aircraft carrier.However, the paper did not release images taken by the satellite.
North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency also claimed that its satellite passed over Hawaii and observed “a naval base in the Pearl Harbor, the Hickam air-force base in Honolulu,” but no satellite photos were published.A lack of supporting evidence makes the North’s claims questionable, but such a move could be seen as its latest act of provocation towards the U.S., given that Pyongyang claims to possess nuclear weapons and is actively refining its miniaturization and delivery technologies, aiming to deliver its nuclear warheads to reach the U.S. mainland.The recent assertion could be an attempt to demonstrate North Korea’s ability to surveil key U.S. locations, showcasing the advanced capabilities it deems necessary as a self-proclaimed nuclear state.
A White House National Security Council spokesperson said the US cannot independently verify the North Korean claim. The spokesperson said the US condemns the launch of a space launch vehicle using ballistic missile technology, calling it a violation of multiple United Nations Security Council resolutions.
