North Korea successfully tested a newly-developed ballistic missile, seeking to verify the new missile’s capability to carry a nuclear warhead, the North Korean government said Monday.
“The test-fire aimed at verifying the tactical and technological specifications of the newly developed ballistic rocket capable of carrying a large-size heavy nuclear warhead,” said the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), North Korea’s state-run media service.
The test, the country’s seventh this year, was conducted on Sunday and drew significant ire from White House officials, who called the North Korean regime a “flagrant menace” in a statement.
“The United States maintains our ironclad commitment to stand with our allies in the face of the serious threat posed by North Korea,” the statement went on to say.
More hostile rhetoric flew from the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un after the test, accusing the United States of “browbeating” non-nuclear armed countries.
