US condemns North Korea’s intercontinental missile launch

In a statement, State Department spokesman Ned Price said Thursday’s ICBM launch by Pyongyang is “a violation of multiple UN Security Council resolutions.”

Pyongyang fired three new missiles on Thursday, including an intercontinental ballistic missile that created a false alarm in Japan. The launch of this ICBM “seems to have failed” indicated the South Korean army. Washington has condemned the launch of an intercontinental missile by North Korea.

“This launch is a violation of multiple UN Security Council resolutions,” said Ned Price, spokesman for the US State Department, in a statement.

“The United States will take all necessary measures”

For the American official, this new shot from Pyongyang “underlines the need for all countries to fully implement Security Council resolutions” sanctioning North Korea.

Washington’s support for the defense of South Korea and Japan “remains unwavering”, warns Ned Price.

In a statement, White House spokeswoman Adrienne Watson “strongly condemns” Pyongyang’s action. “The United States will take all necessary measures to ensure the security of the American homeland, South Korea and Japan,” it read.

The world “holds its breath”

The United States and South Korea have been warning for months that North Korea is preparing to carry out a nuclear test, which would be the seventh in its history and the first in five years.

World ‘holds its breath’ ahead of possible new North Korean nuclear test that would be ‘new confirmation’ that Pyongyang’s nuclear program is “moving at full speed”had worried at the end of October the boss of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

“Another nuclear test would be further confirmation of a nuclear program that is moving full steam ahead in an incredibly worrying direction,” Grossi said.
