UN Security Council for imposing sanctions on North Korea's missile test

19 May 2017, 06:23 | Taylor George

He warned the USA should not "disregard or misjudge the reality" that its mainland and Pacific operation region were in range for a strike.

It said the missile was capable of carrying a "heavy nuclear warhead".

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Sunday observed the test launch of a new ballistic missile that can carry a large nuclear warhead and has the US mainland within striking range, state media claimed Monday. Its capabilities fall in between those of intercontinental ballistic missiles, whose speed at re-entry is said to reach Mach 24 or faster, and the midrange Musudan missiles, which have a range of 2,500km to 4,000km.

Pyongyang's latest missile launch was condemned worldwide, with the United States calling North Korea a "flagrant menace" and urging allies to impose even stronger sanctions on the nation.

The US military's Pacific Command said the type of missile that was sacked was "not consistent with an intercontinental ballistic missile".

On Monday morning, North Korea officially confirmed that it had conducted the launch of a medium-range ballistic missile a day before.

The statement also condemned an earlier ballistic missile launch by Pyongyang on April 28 - following that launch, Washington began talks with China on possible new United Nations sanctions. The country's dictator Kim Jong Un is warning (he's done it before) that the country is well on its way to striking the US mainland and military bases throughout the Pacific Ocean.

A U.N. Security Council is expected to hold a closed-door meeting in response to the missile launch on Tuesday. The last set of sanctions, imposed in March, capped China's imports of North Korean coal, a key cash earner for North Korea.

Trump slams Russian Federation probe as 'greatest witch hunt in U.S. history'
Rosenstein has done the right thing", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said on the Senate floor. Attorney General Jeff Sessions had already recused himself from the probe in March.

"The test-fire proved to the full all the technical specifications of the rocket. like guidance and stabilization systems. and reconfirmed the reliability of new rocket engine under the practical flight circumstances", KCNA said.

The regional powers strongly denounced Pyongyang for the missile test, as their working-level defense officials had a video conference on the issue, South Korea's defense ministry said.

The White House responded by saying the hermit kingdom has been a "flagrant menace for far too long" and urged "far stronger sanctions" against the reclusive nation.

Ju Yong Choi said US' criticism of it was a "wanton violation of the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea]".

North Korea has tested dozens of banned missiles in the a year ago, though this was the first one deemed by US officials to have been a success, after a string of recent failures.

Noteworthy, a resolution approved by the UN Security Council prohibits the DPRK to conduct any activities related to the development of nuclear weapons and their means of delivery.

North Korea published photos and video clips from Sunday's successful launch of its Hwasong-12 midrange missile.

And Trump had opened the door earlier this month to talks, saying he would be "honored" to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. They've failed to stop the North's progress, which includes five nuclear test explosions since 2006.
