Defiant North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has stated that Pyongyang’s
latest missile launch show its capacity to launch an offensive against the US in the Pacific.
South Korea which closely monitored the missile launch by it neighbours says the North launched what appeared to be two intermediate-range missiles dubbed Musudan on Wednesday with the first of the two considered a failure.
The test-fire was successful without putting the security of neighbouring countries at risk, the North’s KCNA news agency said, referring to the missile as a “Hwasong-10.” Hwasong is Korean for Mars.
“We have the sure capability to attack in an overall and practical way the Americans in the Pacific operation theatre,” KCNA quoted Kim as saying.
