The United States has said North Korea has tested an intercontinental ballistic missile system. The United States has strongly objected to North Korea’s move.
North Korea claimed to have tested the missile on February 26 and March 4, focusing on the development of such satellites. The intercontinental ballistic missile tested by North Korea has the potential to hit the United States.
A Pentagon spokesman, John Kirby, claimed that North Korea’s test was based on an intercontinental ballistic missile system. U.S. officials say North Korea’s test raises the risk of destabilizing the security situation. Even Japan and South Korea have condemned the North’s test. The United States has said North Korea tested a missile in defiance of a number of UN Security Council resolutions.
