According to South Korean report, North Korea tried to test fire an intermediate range missile called Musudan. It was fired at around 5:20 am from Wonsan city. The report suggests that the test was failed. In recent times North Korea has launched a number of missile tests. They also claimed to have successfully tested a Hydrogen bomb but the most countries doubt the legitimacy of this claim. North Korea had failed 3 times earlier trying to test Musudan missiles.
Japan’s chief cabinet secretary Yoshihide Suga, confirmed that no missile was reported heading towards Japan. Despite a number of international sanctions, North Korea continues to develop its nuclear and ballistic arsenal. Recently Kim Jong Un proposed having talks with South Korea but South Korea refused the offer as North Korea’s nuclear program is expanding at full speed.
