The news Agency of DPRK KCNA confirmed the launch, saying that the MKR Hwasong-15 is the most powerful rocket of all who have tested the DPRK.

In Pyongyang said that the rocket reached an altitude of 4 475 km (2780 miles) and after 950 km and landed near the Northern coast of the DPRK. According to KCNA, the flight lasted 53 minutes.

In North Korean media added that their leader Kim Jong-UN, who personally signed a document about the launch, «stated with pride that finally we have completed the process of staffing nuclear forces.»

It was also said that their weapons are intended to protect against «American imperialist policy» that «will not pose a threat to any country» if the interests of North Korea are not violated.

Note that this test is contrary to international sanctions against North Korea, so he was immediately condemned in the UN Security Council during an emergency session.

Analysis conducted by the American Union of concerned scientists, showed that the missile could fly more than 13 thousand km on the standard trajectory, reaching thus «any of the continental United States.» However, its warhead is too easy, which suggests that it has no nuclear warhead.
