N Korea says missile launch a new type of 'cruise rocket'

Kim Jong-Un

The official KCNA news agency said the rocket was a "powerful attack means capable of striking any enemy group of battleships attempting at military attack on the DPRK (North Korea) from the ground at will".

KCNA added the missiles "accurately detected and hit the floating targets on the East Sea of Korea".

Pyongyang's fifth test in less than a month was launched in defiance of global pressure to rein in its weapons program.

North Korea Fires Another Salvo Of Missiles, Defying International Condemnation

North Korea fired what appeared to be several land-to-ship missiles off its east coast in South Korea.

North Korea fired another salvo of missiles Thursday morning, keeping up the relentless pace of testing as it advances toward its goal of producing an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the mainland United States.

The latest barrage comes after three launches in May, and means Kim Jong Un has now ordered almost as many missile launches this year alone as his father oversaw - 16 - during 17 years in power.

North Korea fired what appeared to be several land-to-ship missiles off its east coast on Thursday, South Korea's military said, the latest in a fast-paced series of missile tests defying world pressure to rein in its weapons programme. The launches come less than a week after the United Nations Security Council passed fresh sanctions on the reclusive state, which said it would continued to pursue its nuclear and missile programme without delay.

North Korea "fully rejects" the latest U.N sanctions against its citizens and entities as a "hostile act" and will continue its nuclear weapons development without a delay, its foreign ministry spokesman said on Sunday.

The U.N. Security Council on Friday expanded targeted sanctions against North Korea after its repeated missile tests, adopting the first such resolution agreed by the United States and Pyongyang's only major ally China since U.S. President Donald Trump took office.

'Yankees Would Be Worried,' North Korea's Kim Jong-un Said After Missile Test


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.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un supervised the launch of the "new-type precision guided ballistic rocket" - the third missile test by the nuclear-armed regime in less than three weeks and carried out in defiance of UN sanctions warnings and US threats of possible military action.

North Korea's missile launches have prompted calls for tougher UN sanctions

North Korea Monday test-fired a ballistic missile, the latest in a series of launches that have ratcheted up tensions over its quest to develop weapons capable of hitting the United States.

The short-range missile flew for six minutes before landing in the Sea of Japan, the US Pacific Command said, adding it was working on a more detailed assessment.

The launch comes in fresh defiance of tough talk from US President Donald Trump, who promised Friday that the "big problem" of North Korea "will be solved".
