In the face of United Nations sanctions and the United States warnings and threats, North Korea Leader, Kim Jong-Un has vowed to launch more missile flights over Japan saying that the initial launch which sparked fear and fury was a mere curtain-raiser .

 

The Hwasong-12 intermediate-range missile released by Pyongyang days back, represented a major escalation of tensions over its weapons programmes. United Nations in a statement have agreed that the North’s “outrageous” actions “are not just a threat to the region, but to all UN member states”.

 

South Korea’s military mentioned that the missile traveled around 2,700 kilometres (1,700 miles) and reached a maximum altitude of 550 kilometres.

 

Meanwhile, this is the first time North Korea has agreed sending a missile over Japan’s main islands. Two of its rockets previously did so, in 1998 and 2009, but on both occasions the North claimed they were space launch vehicles.
