The US military conducted a test Wednesday (Aug 2) of an unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), officials said, just days after North Korea conducted its own ICBM launch.
Minuteman missiles have been regularly tested at the Vandenberg base, and Wednesday's test is the fourth this year. That test raised concerns about Pyongyang's capabilities to strike the USA mainland.President Trump earlier this week expressed confidence the USA would deal with North Korea."We'll handle North Korea".
Worldwide tensions with North Korea have intensified as Pyongyang this year has tested two nuclear devices and numerous missiles, including its first two ICBM launches last month.
The launch comes less than a week after North Korea tested an intercontinental ballistic missile for the second time. Dianne Feinstein described North Korea's missile tests as "a clear and present danger" to the United States. Carrying telemetry equipment to gather operational test data, the re-entry vehicle came down at Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands, site of a US Army missile test range.
The Minuteman III missile, the only US land-based ICBM in service, was sacked at 2:10 a.m. Rather the launch "demonstrates that the United States' nuclear enterprise is safe, secure, effective" and can protect against strikes, the command said.
It is one of three legs of the nuclear triad, along with strategic bombers and submarine-launched ballistic missiles. Another test was conducted by the Air Force on April 26.
An Air Force statement said the test would show the effectiveness, readiness, and accuracy of the weapon system.
Russian Federation also provided evidence indicating that the missile launch on July 4 was a test of an intermediate range rocket, much smaller in size and with lower capabilities than a conventional ICBM.
On May 30, the Missile Defence Agency conducted a flight test exercise of a ground-based interceptor that was also launched from the air base.
