North Korea leader Kim supervises missile test of new guidance system: KCNA

Claiming the latest ballistic missile test conducted on Monday (29 May) was highly accurate, the rogue leader yet again promised his country will not stand undefended against the threats from the US.

A ballistic missile launched early yesterday by the reclusive nation flew 450 kilometres from the eastern coastal city of Wonsan and landed in the Sea of Japan, according to South Korean and USA authorities.

Monday's missile test drew immediate protests from Japan and South Korea, with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe promising "concrete action" in response to the test, and South Korean defense chiefs saying the North would face "strong punishment from our military".

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

"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.

"The North Korean regime has hundreds of artillery cannons and rocket launchers within range of one of the most densely populated cities on Earth, which is the capital of South Korea", Mattis told Face the Nation. If the report is true, North Korea has likely developed its short-range missiles enough that they can strike South Korea and parts of Japan.

It wasn't the best campaign for us, in truth. "Next season we would change some things but let's celebrate", he said. Alexandre Letellier made a fine save in the 56th minute to deny Matuidi as Angers held firm.

North's launch of the missiles is in defiance of global pressure, including the United Nations which has imposed several sanctions on the country considering its increasingly ambitious nuclear and ballistic missiles programme.

North Korea confirmed its test-firing of a precision-guided ballistic missile was "successful", the state-run news agency KCNA reported Tuesday, a day after the projectile landed in waters provocatively close to Japan.

A US Navy spokesman in South Korea did not give specific timing for the attack group's planned drill.

The U.S. military on Tuesday successfully intercepted an intercontinental-range missile for the first time, a key test of its missile-defense system amid heightening tensions with North Korea. As a result, North Korea is stepping up its development of advanced weapons that would allow the country to defend itself.

"This regime is a threat to the region, to Japan, to South Korea".
