North Korea Launches Intercontinental Ballistic Missile

HeadlineNov 29, 2017

North Korea fired an intercontinental ballistic missile Tuesday, its first missile launch in two months. The missile flew nearly 600 miles before landing in the Sea of Japan. U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said it was the furthest missile launch by North Korea to date. This is South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

President Moon Jae-in: “North Korea fired a ballistic missile today. This action does not only increase tension on the Korean Peninsula but gravely endangers the international peace and security. We strongly condemn North Korea in continuing such reckless behavior.”

The launch comes after President Trump escalated diplomatic tensions by putting North Korea back on the list of state sponsors of terrorism. President Trump has also threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea, a nation of 25 million people.
