North Korea Claims New Missile Landed Within 7 Meters of Target

North Korea Claims New Missile Landed Within 7 Meters of Target”

Scuds are capable of striking at American troops in South Korea, for instance, and two newly developed missiles tested earlier this month have potential ranges that include Japan, Guam and even, according to some South Korean analysts, Alaska.

Shotaro Yachi, head of the secretariat of the Japanese government's National Security Council, on Monday called on China to play a bigger role in addressing North Korea's missile launches, Japan's Jiji Press reported.

"North Korea has shown great disrespect for their neighbor, China, by shooting off yet another ballistic missile ... but China is trying hard!"

South Korea's military said the Scud-type missile travelled for 450 km (280 miles).

Following Pyongyang's latest missile launch Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe vowed to take action against the state with the help of the United States.

Last week, Marine Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, said if North Korea's growing nuclear threat is not monitored and stopped, Kim would eventually succeed in fielding a nuclear-armed missile that could possibly reach the U.S.

"We can't prove if it's bluffing, but North Korea is basically saying it can hit the target right in the centre, which is scary news for the USA", said Suh Kune Y., a professor at Seoul National University's department of nuclear engineering.

North Korea on Tuesday boasted its test of a precision-guided missile was "successful", saying it had zeroed in within a few metres of a target provocatively close to Japan the day before.

Monday's missile test, the third in three weeks, again provoked the worldwide community's condemnation.

"This system is vitally important to the defense of our homeland, and this test demonstrates that we have a capable, credible deterrent against a very real threat", he said.

Delivering a soliloquy of sorts after the loss, Karlsson spoke calmly of coming so close and yet remaining so far. The Senators went the first 50-plus minutes of the game without being called for a penalty.

The ground-based interceptor system is mainly created to counter a North Korean missile threat, but a USA official said Tuesday's test has been planned for years and is coincidental to North Korea's increased missile testing this year.

North Korea launched a missile on Monday which was equipped with an advanced automated pre-launch sequence compared with previous versions of the "Hwasong" rockets.

Bennett said the frequency of Kim's missile testing may indicate some instability in North Korea, perhaps some discontent with the regime from North Korean elites.
