Over The Success Of North-Korea Missile Lunch, Trump Calls For Emergency U.N Meeting


President Donald Trump called an emergency meeting on the 4th of July to formulate a 'measured response' to North Korea's first intercontinental ballistic missile test, amid fears it could reach as far as Alaska.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has confirmed North Korea successfully tested an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of hitting Alaska.



And Tillerson says that’s a new escalation of the threat posed to the United States and the world by North Korea.

Tillerson says the U.S. will bring North Korea’s action before the United Nations Security Council.

His statement provided the first confirmation of the U.S. conclusion that the missile was an ICBM.

The U.S. military’s initial assessment was that North Korea fired an intermediate-range missile.

The U.S. has requested a closed-door meeting of the United Nations Security Council on the latest launch, a spokesman for the US mission to the United Nations says.

The spokesman said the meeting of the 15-member council was likely to be scheduled for Wednesday.




Weapons experts in the United States said that the missile has the potential to reach areas of Alaska.



On Tuesday, the US, Japan, and South Korea said intelligence suggested themissile flew for about 40 minutes and reached an altitude of 1,500 miles, which would be longer and higher than any similar North Korean test previously reported. 

It also covered a distance of about 580 miles.

'That range would not be enough to reach the lower 48 states or the large islands of Hawaii, but would allow it to reach all of Alaska.'





U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says the launch is a new escalation of the threat posed to the United States and the world by North Korea.




How far would missile have to travel from Pyongyang to reach the rest of the world?



US Naval Base in Guam: 2,114 miles (3,402 km)

Hawaii: 4,727 miles (7,670 km)

London (over mainland Europe): 5,379 miles (8,657 km)

San Francisco: 5,588 miles (8,993 km)

Los Angeles: 5,935 miles (9,551 km)

New York: 6,783 miles (10,916 km)

Washington, DC: 6,857 miles (11,035 km)
