North Korea: Our experience missile to carry a nuclear warhead test
North Korea said on Monday it had successfully test-fired a missile average to a long-range on Sunday, in order to ensure the ability to carry "a large and strong nuclear warhead," noting that the leader Kim Jong-un personally supervised the experiment.
The Korean Central News Agency reported that the missile fired at the top corner so as not to affect the security of neighboring countries and set off for a distance of 787 kilometers and reached an altitude of 2111.5 kilometers.
The agency said the missile was launched named "Hwasong -12", is a strategic ballistic missile from the long-term average, and has been developed recently.
North Korean leader said that the United States should not forget that its territory lies within the range of his rocket fire.
For its part, South Korea said the missile was launched from a base in Goseong Pyongan province (north-west) and passed about 700 kilometers before falling in the Sea of Japan.
The United States asked yesterday for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council and the tightening of sanctions on North Korea.
This is the second missile test of North Korea in 15 days, and the first since the South Korean president Ji-moon said his duties.
