[FBIS Translated Text] According to reports, the United States plans to test-fire an antimissile missile [yokyok misail] in order to achieve its nation-wide missile defense plan [chonyok misail pangwigusang]. The U.S. newspaper THE WASHINGTON POST, quoting remarks by a U.S. intelligence official, reported on 11 January that the United States plans to test-fire a nation-wide high-altitude anti-missile missile [chonyok chogodo yokyok misail], which would become the core of its national missile defense plan, in February. It was reported that this test by the United States would be carried out on 14 occasions over the next two years. The national missile defense plan, as a successor to the criminal strategy defense plan [chollyak pangwi kusang], is designed by the United States to gain supremacy [uwikwon] in the area of missiles following the end of the Cold War by modernizing its missile arm.
