North Korea has hailed as a success its latest test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), describing it as a “stern warning” for the US.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said the test proved that the entire US was within striking range, state media reported. The launch came three weeks after North Korea’s first ICBM test.
US President Donald Trump called it “only the latest reckless and dangerous action by the North Korean regime”.
China also condemned the missile test but urged “all parties concerned” to exercise restraint “and avoid intensifying tensions”.
