North Korea’s missile could pose a serious threat to Europe
The closest European country to North Korea is Norway, if drawn a straight line, the distance between Norway and North Korea is about 3,900 miles.
A series of intercontinental ballistic missile tests conducted by North Korea led Donald Trump to authorize Japan and South Korea to purchase sophisticated military equipment from the United States in anticipation of various possibilities.
This statement was issued on the official Twitter account of the US President, Donal Trump, “I allow Japan and South Korea to purchase some very sophisticated military equipment from the United States.”
Responding to North Korea’s intercontinental ballistic missile tests, the French Defense Minister later commented after Russian leader Vladimir Putin commented that the idea of new sanctions to be imposed on North Korea is ineffective and useless.
“If you look at a series of tests conducted, as well as the coverage of the missiles that are claimed to fly as far as 6,200 miles, then there is the risk of intercontinental ballistic missiles made during the Kim Jong Un regime targeting the continent, and the estimated range of missiles to be able to reaching Europe will be faster than expected “, said French Defense Minister Florence Parly to the French military in Toulan.
Florence Parly made a speech: “That in a major conflict, the scenario of expansion of the impact can not be avoided, so that missile range from North Korea could threaten the European region”.
On another occasion, one of North Korea’s top diplomats said that his country is ready to send more “gift packages” to the United States.
North Korea’s UN Ambassador at Geneva, Han Tae Song, at a disarmament conference said that “The successful trials of the hydrogen bomb on intercontinental ballistic missiles conducted on September 3, 2017 are proud, showing the success of the nuclear power development plan strategically in North Korea.
He added that “A series of intercontinental ballistic missile tests is a measure of self-defense over North Korean sovereignty, and the trial is a “gift package” aimed for the US, US will receive more gift packs from North Korea if they continues to pressure my country with useless provocation”.
