The civilians from Hokkaido were already warned by Japan about an over flight of the missile, by issuing electronic alerts and activating sirens.
More than a dozen of missile has yet been tested this year by North Korea, which includes a number of inter-continental ballistic missiles. This leads to the words’ war between Kim’s regime and President of United States Donald Trump, which rattled the global markets.
The senior research fellow from the Defense and Security Forum of Korea, Yang Uk said that, “This rocket has meaning in that North Korea is pushing towards technological completion of its missiles and that North Korea may be feeling some pressure that they need to show the international community something.”
While, the associate professor and defense expert from international relations at the Daito Bunka University in Japan, Garren Mulloy stated that, “From previous launches and the altitude and ranges of those missiles, it has been assumed that Guam is within range of the North’s missiles, but this latest test is proof.”
Rex Tillerson, State’s Secretary of the United States urged Russia and China to make more for reining in the North Korea, as he worded that, “China and Russia must indicate their intolerance for these reckless missile launches by taking direct actions of their own.”
