N. Korea’s Hwasong-15 missile is new type of ICBM – Seoul

The Hwasong-15 missile that North Korea launched on Wednesday is a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile, and it can fly over 13,000km, a South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman said on Friday, as cited by Reuters. Pyongyang said earlier this week it had test-fired its most advanced missile, putting the US mainland within range. The test violates UN Security Council resolutions. South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday in a phone call with US President Donald Trump that the new missile was Pyongyang’s most advanced so far, but it still has some technical issues to settle, like re-entry and terminal guidance system technology.
