North Korea threatens missile launch anytime, blames US
Jan.9, Seoul: North Korea says it can test-launch an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) at any time from any location chosen by leader Kim Jong-un, adding the United States' hostile policy was to blame for its arms development.
Kim said on January 1 his nuclear-capable country was close to test-launching an ICBM.
"The ICBM will be launched anytime and anywhere determined by the supreme headquarters of the DPRK," an unnamed foreign ministry spokesman was quoted as saying on Sunday by the official KCNA news agency, using the acronym for the country's name.
The North is formally known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
