seoul - North Korea said on Tuesday that it had been tested with an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). The test with the long-range rocket has been successful according to the regime, according to the South Korean press office Yonhap.
Only five countries in the world have ICBM systems at their disposal. However, in the eyes of US and South Korean observers, North Korea conducted a test with a powerful medium-distance raid on Tuesday.
The rocket has reached a height of more than 2300 kilometers and has estimated 6000 kilometers in its arc. The projectile arrived 930 kilometers from the launch site in the sea.
South Korean president Moon Jae-in takes the latest North Korea rocket test very seriously. He said analyzing whether it could be a kind of ICBM. The South Korean leader became president on May 10 and has since witnessed six missile trials of the northern neighbors. He called on the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday to take further action against North Korea after the last provocation. '
In the region there is great concern about the North Korean obsession with missiles. The Americans are also deeply concerned about the nuclear and rocket program of the totalitarian regime in Pyongyang. That is likely to work on the development of missiles that the United States can achieve. US President Donald Trump has called on China to address North Korea and 'once and for all put an end to this nonsense. 'Trump meets this week's Chinese ambassador Xi Jinping during the G20 summit in Hamburg.
