North Korea has been spotted moving yet another Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) towards the western coast, insiders have revealed.
The rocket started moving on Monday, a day after North Korea’s sixth nuclear test and was reportedly spotted moving at night to avoid surveillance.
The Western side of the peninsula brings the missile closer to enemies of the Kim regime include Japan and the US amid rising fears of World War 3.
A Hwasong-14 ICBM tested earlier this year by Kim Jong-un’s cruel regime was found to be capable of reaching the continental US if fired at the right trajectory.
North Korea has launch facilities for its missile program on its west coast.
South Korea’s defense ministry said they were unable to confirm the contents of the report.
But the ministry said on Monday that North Korea was considered ready to launch more missiles, including ICBMs, at any time.
There are fears the missile could be tested ahead of the 9th to commemorate North Korea’s founders day.
The Hermit Kingdom tested two ICBMs in July capable of flying roughly 10,000 km (6,200 miles), putting many parts of the U.S. mainland within range.
Earlier this week U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley claimed North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was “begging for war” – and urged the 15-member U.N. Security Council to impose the “strongest possible” sanctions on the dictator’s territory.
Following Kim Jong-un’s testing of a hydrogen bomb, Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in agreed to allow the South to develop even more powerful missiles.
The leaders made the agreement in a phone call to lift the cap on the power of South Korea’s arsenal, Seoul’s presidential office announced today.
The agreement is aimed at building South Korea’s ability to defend itself against further provocation by removing a limit on the payload their missiles are allowed to carry.
The decision follows weeks of discussion between defense and foreign officials of the US and South Korea.
South Korean presidential spokesman Park Soo-Hyun said: “President Moon noted the condition was very concerning in that the latest nuclear test showed more power than any previous tests and that North Korea itself has claimed the test involved a hydrogen bomb to be mounted on intercontinental ballistic missiles.”
President Trump said he recognized the need for Seoul to have powerful practical measures and promised to work closely together with the South.
