The missile flew over Japan before finishing its race east of Hokkaido.
Shinzo Abe, the Japanese Prime Minister, called the shooting a ” serious and serious threat to Japan” .
It is indeed the first time a North Korean craft is flying over the main islands of the Japanese archipelago.
The intention of the Pyongyang regime was to demonstrate its willingness to complete its ballistic testing program and its ability to strike Guam, a Pacific island that is home to US military bases.
The UN council described the shooting as “a threat not only to the region but also to the world “. China and Russia supported this statement.
In response to this shooting, South Korea also carried out missile fire near the border with North Korea.
” If North Korea threatens the security of the South Korean population with their missiles, our air force will eliminate its government with our strong strike force, ” a South Korean colonel warned.
