'Hero's welcome' for missile developers in North Korea

'Hero's welcome' for missile developers in North Korea

"It is ridiculous", Kim In-Ryong, North Korea's deputy ambassador to the United Nations, told reporters, suggesting Washington and Seoul were behind the allegation.

The missile's re-entry was controlled and the vehicle successfully re-entered the atmosphere without burning up.

Friday's news conference came after a string of provocations by the North - seven test launches of ballistic missiles this year alone - generally followed by condemnation from the worldwide community.

The successful launch, supervised by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, indicates a significant advancement in North Korea's ballistic missile program. It noted that "patent applications are not covered by the provisions of U.N. Security Council resolutions".

It is known to the entire world that the North Korea and the United States are not sharing a good bonding these days.

Meanwhile, the South Korean Navy revealed a USA nuclear-powered aircraft carrier group was to remain in the vicinity indefinitely, while Seoul's defense ministry warned it was ready to carry out a preemptive strike if it detected a missile threat from North Korea.




North Korea has repeated test launches to obtain the technology needed for reentry into the atmosphere, which is said to be technically very hard.

Hong also held a separate one-on-one meeting with National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster to discuss pending issues between the two countries, including nuclear and missile tensions with North Korea and the deployment of THAAD. "You have to pick a side".

Kim accused the council of playing "to the tune of the US again" and protested the Trump administration's demand for countries to choose allegiance between the United States and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, his country's official name.

Last month USA president Donald Trump warned a "major, major conflict" with North Korea was possible as he revealed he would be willing to meet with Kim Jong-un.

Asked about Beijing and Moscow's support for the six previous rounds of United Nations sanctions, Kim said both countries are "close neighbors" who "understand our nuclear projection occurred through the US continued nuclear threat and its hostile policy" toward North Korea.

"The U.S. should mind that the DPRK nuclear striking capability will be strengthened and developed at a rapidly high speed as long as the U.S. insists (on) its anti-DPRK policy, nasty nuclear threats and blackmails, sanction and pressure", Kim said.
