South Korean army chief has said that North Korea has tabled another ballistic missile.
The US Department of Defense has said that according to its initial assessment, it is an inter-continental ballistic missile. US Defense Secretary James Matisse described it as a threat to the whole world.
Earlier, the US Department of Defense said that this missile had set a distance of thousands of kilometers and it fell into Japan Sea. South Korea News Agency Yonhap has said that this missile has been left east of Pyongyag in southern Pyongsan province.
Shortly after this trial, US President Donald Trump told reporters in the White House that he would handle this situation.
He said, “As you might have heard and some have even reported that a missile has been fired from North Korea some time ago, we just want to say that we will take care of it. We have a long discussion on this, it is a situation we will handle.”
It has not been fully cleared so far, how far the missile has been torn up and whether it has flown over from Japan, it is still unknown. In the same year, North Korea fired a missile over Japan.
