North Korea successful missile launch of mid to long range missiles is an advancement for its intercontinental ballistic missile. The monarchy bragged about their successful missile launch which was launched and was supervised by the monarch Kim Jong Un. Kim accused the United States of “browbeating” countries that “have no nukes” and warned Washington not to misjudge the reality that its mainland is in the North’s “sighting range for strike”, the North’s official KCNA news agency reported.
However, the U.S. military’s Pacific Command said on Sunday the type of missile that was fired was “not consistent” with an ICBM and South Korea’s military played down the North’s claim of technical progress on atmospheric re-entry.
The missile landed
in the sea near Russia on Sunday. They have been working on a nuclear tipped missile to reach United States of America which is 8000 km. Honorary President of States Mr. Donald Trump said the last month major conflict with North Korea was possible but he would prefer a Diplomatic outcome.
The new missile is Hwasong-12, was fired at the highest possible angle to avoid affecting neighboring countries’ security and flew 787 km (489 miles) after reaching an altitude of 2,111 km (1,242 miles), KCNA said.
North Korea is banned under United Nations resolutions from engaging in nuclear and missile development, but has conducted its fifth nuclear test and a string of missile launches since the start of last year.
The U.N. Security council is due to meet on Tuesday at the request of South Korea, Japan, and United States to discuss about the latest missile launch by the monarchy.
Experts said Sunday’s launch would have had a range of at least 4,000 km (2,500 miles) if fired at a standard trajectory.
“It appears to have not only demonstrated an intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) that might enable them to reliably strike the U.S. base at Guam, but more importantly, may represent a substantial advance to developing an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM),” it said.
North Korea has accused the United States of a hostile policy to remove its regime and says its nuclear weapons and missiles are a “sacred sword” to protect itself.
