North Korea’s North Korean party Rodong Sinmun, due to the new missile testing, wrote that no external pressure would force Pyongyang to interrupt the development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, if the United States continues to behave hostile towards them.
“No pressure will affect us,” under this heading, the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea published a six-page article inviting the US to listen to Pyongyang.
“If the United States continues to ignore our sincere advice, self-protection of our republics will only strengthen,” states Rodong Sinmun.
Earlier it was reported that North Korea fired an unidentified missile from Sunan district in the Pyongyang capital eastward, the South Korean army said.
The rocket flew over northern Japan, according to reports from the Japanese alert system, about 2,000 kilometers east of Hokkaido, AFP reports.
Last month, North Korea fired a rocket that flew over Japan, and Tokyo called it a “unprecedented threat”.
New rocket testing came shortly after South Korea organized exercises in the Japanese Sea.
Otherwise, after the UN Security Council adopted a new package of sanctions against North Korea, Pyongyang warned that it was time to “destroy the US, sink Japan and erase South Korea.”
