seoul - The Hwasong-15 that North Korea tested this week is a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile that can bridge a distance of more than 13,000 kilometers. That's what a spokesman for the South Korean Defense Ministry says on Friday.
After the successful test according to North Korea, Pyongyang already stated that the new missile can bridge a much larger distance than previously tested projectiles. It is now also possible to reach the mainland of the United States, according to North Korea.
American experts, who were previously skeptical about Pyongyang's claims, confirm this time the talk of North Korea. According to the experts, the new rocket has enough power to get a warhead anywhere in the US.
