North Korea renews accusation of CIA assassination plot

Russian President Vladimir Putin weighed in Monday morning, calling the test "counterproductive" and "dangerous", but he also suggested the USA and it's regional allies could bear some of the blame, saying "we must stop intimidating North Korea".

North Korea's ballistic rocket test Sunday was "aimed at verifying the tactical and technological specifications" of a newly developed missile "capable of carrying a large-size heavy nuclear warhead", the country's official KCNA news agency said Monday.

"The test firing of ICBMs will occur at any time and place, at the will of North Korea's highest leadership", Ji said.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inspects a ballistic missile identified by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) as a Hwasong-12 (Mars-12), in an undated photo released by KCNA on May 15, 2017. South Korea and Japan also strongly condemned the missile test.

Neither the US nor its allies in the region were able to determine the type of the missile launched on 14 May on Korean time.

North Korea is believed to be developing an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead and reaching the US mainland, though the USA military's Pacific Command said the type of missile fired on Sunday was "not consistent" with an ICBM.

Australia's prime minister has called on China to use its leverage over North Korea to end the regime's missile testing.

The South Korean, Japanese and USA militaries say the missile flew for half an hour and reached an unusually high altitude before landing in the Sea of Japan.

The latest addition to the Pyongyang's arsenal is one step closer towards North Korea's nuclear propaganda, according to some experts in Tokyo.

Japanese officials say the missile flew for about 30 minutes, traveling about 800 kilometers (500 miles) and reaching an altitude of 2,000 kilometers (1,240 miles).

Even though North Korea is far from its ultimate target of creating small-sized nuclear warheads, capable of carrying longer-range missiles, some believe it has already achieved its goal of building shorter-range missiles, which can carry nuclear warheads. The missile flew for about half an hour, at a greater elevation than missiles usually do, and landed in the Sea of Japan, reports said.

North Korea has tested dozens of banned missiles in the previous year, though this was the first one deemed by US officials to have been a success, after a string of recent failures.
