Pyongyang, November 29: After remaining inactive for two months North Korea has again North Korea fired a Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile. Hours after the launch North Korea said the new type of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) could reach the entire U.S. mainland. The test came a week after US President Donald Trump brought back the country to the list of states sponsoring terrorism.
“After watching the successful launch of the new type ICBM Hwasong-15, Kim Jong Un declared with pride that now we have finally realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force, the cause of building a rocket power,” according to a statement read by a television presenter of North Korean state TV.
United Nations Security Council will hold an emergency meeting to discuss the latest launch. “This is a clear violation of Security Council resolutions and shows complete disregard for the united view of the international community,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said.
