DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. March 19, 2017, 6:29 PM (IDT)

Kim Jong Un attended the ground test of a new type high-thrust rocket engine at the Sohae launch site Sunday, as US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing. Tillrson was wrapping up a swing through Asia that was dominated by deep concerns over North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs, which Washington hoped the Chinese would help to address. Kim called the test a “revolutionary breakthrough in his country’s space program.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
