NORTH KOREA TESTS A NEW MISSILE WHICH IT CAN REACH THE ENTIRE U.S.A., ACCORDING TO THIS

Seoul / North Korea has announced that the latest missile it has launched is a new model of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), capable of loading a large nuclear warhead and reaching “the entire United States.”

According to the North Korean state media, Pyongyang has managed to complete its nuclear force thanks to this”successful” test.

The regime has also detailed that the missile named Hwasong-15 flew 950 kilometres and reached a height of about 4,475 kilometres.

These data are in line with those handled by South Korea, the United States and Japan and indicate that it is the highest height reached to date by a North Korean projectile, which implies a new and dangerous advance for the regime’s weapons program.

Taking into account that the missile has been fired at a very wide angle, some experts believe that the projectile could have travelled on a normal flight over 13,000 kilometres, a distance sufficient to reach Washington or any continental part of the United States.

The missile flew east before falling into the waters of the Sea of Japan, about 250 kilometres off the coast of the Japanese prefecture of Aomori (in the north of the archipelago).

This last test, the first in the last two and a half months, is the twentieth launched by North Korea so far this year.

The continued testing of weapons and the belligerent responses of Donald Trump have increased the tension in the Korean peninsula in 2017 to levels not seen since the end of the Korean War, which ended in 1953.
