North Korea missile test a ‘new threat to world’, says US amid show of military force

Kim Jong-un calls test a 4 July gift to American bastards as US secretary of state advises action against Northern korean and regime

The United States has ramped up pressure on North Korea after Tuesdays successful intercontinental ballistic missile exam, making a show of force off the Korean peninsula with a accuracy firing exercising and warning that any country harbouring Northern korean employees was abetting Kim Jong-uns regime.

The US secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, corroborated North Korea had conducted its first exam of an intercontinental ballistic missile( ICBM) and called for global action to counter an escalation of the threat posed by the regime.

Kim Jong-un delivered his own message on Wednesday, with the country Korean Central News Agency( KCNA) quoting him as telling: American motherfuckers would be not very happy with this gift sent on the July 4 anniversary.

The news agency claimed the missile was capable of carrying a large, heavy nuclear warhead that could survive re-entry into the Earths atmosphere.

Kim was quoted as saying the Norths long confrontation with Washington had entered the final stage and that Pyongyang would not set its nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles up for negotiation unless the US hostile policy and nuclear threats come to an end completely. A is present in its nation media said Kim urged his scientists to often send big and small gift packages to the Yankees.

Tillerson warned that any country that hosted North Korean employees, or provided economic or military aid to Pyongyang, or failed to implement United nations organization sanctions was aiding and abetting a dangerous regime.

He said in a statement: The United States strongly condemns North Koreas launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile. Testing an ICBM represents a new escalation of security threats to the United States, our friends and partners, the region, and the world. All nations should publicly demonstrate to North Korea that there are repercussions to their pursuing of nuclear weapons.

He added that the US will never accept a nuclear-armed North Korea.

The security council is expected to meet on Wednesday for an emergency closed-door meeting, with the US and other countries expected to seek agreement on tougher measures against Pyongyang. Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin are expected to address growing North Korean provocations at their meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg on Friday.

The UN secretary general, Antonio Guterres, on Tuesday strongly condemned North Koreas missile launch. This action is yet another brazen violation of security council resolutions and constitutes a dangerous escalation of the situation, he said.

Guterres stressed the importance of maintaining the unity of the international community in addressing this serious challenge, in a reference to US-Sino differences.

China is pushing for talks between world powers and North Korea on dismantling its nuclear program but the US maintains that Pyongyang must first halt its weapon and nuclear tests.

South Korea and the US conducted a massive ballistic missile exercise early on Wednesday in what officials in Seoul said was a warning to Pyongyang. Forces from both countries fired a barrage of rockets, according to the joint chiefs of staff in Seoul.

The live-fire exercise was ordered by the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, who said it would demonstrate the allies determination to counter North Korean provocations with deeds and not only terms of condemnation, South Korea media reported.

President Moon said North Koreas serious provocation involved us to react with more than only a statement and that we need to clearly present our missile defence readiness to North Korea, the presidential Blue House said in a statement be borne by Yonhap news agency.

North Koreas Academy of Defence Science said the missile reached an altitude of 2,802 km( 1,741 miles) and flew 933 km. US Pacific Command corroborated the test and said it was a land-based, intermediate-range missile that flew for 37 minutes before splashing down in the Sea of Japan. It said the launch did not pose a threat to North America.

North Koreans, meanwhile, celebrated the ICBM launch in the capital Pyongyang.

Soon after Tuesdays announcement that it had launched an ICBM a 38 -year-old Pyongyang resident named Ri Song-gil said his country can attack anywhere in the world. He added: Now, the time when the US could threaten the world with nuclear weapon has passed away.

Kim Hye-ok, 27, said the launch was exceedingly delightful news, adding that North Korea will march forward along our own style despite international sanctions.

Questions remain about whether the North can miniaturise a nuclear weapon to fit a missile nosecone, or if it has mastered the technology needed for it to survive re-entry into the Earths atmosphere. KCNA told Tuesdays launch had confirmed all the technological requirements including hot resistance and structural stability of the re-entry nosecone, which it said was made of carbon composite.

Under harsh conditions involving thousands of degrees of heat, pressure and tremors, the temperature inside the nose cone was stable between 25 -4 5 degrees Celsius, it told, adding the warhead flew flawlessly and struck the target precisely.
