Mattis: North Korea Missile Launch Doesn't Bring US Closer To War

Mattis: North Korea Missile Launch Doesn't Bring US Closer To War”

India has expressed concerns after North Korea conducted its first successful test of a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile Hwasong-14 under the supervision of Kim Jong-un and has said that such an action adversely impacts India's national security and undermine global peace and stability.

Though such exercises are planned months in advance, it comes after North Korea on Tuesday for the first time test fired an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching parts of the United States including Alaska.

The MDA said Friday that it will test the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system in the coming days at the Pacific Spaceport Complex Alaska in Kodiak, Alaska.

The US Missile Defence Agency confirmed it aimed to carry out the test "in early July".

Seoul and Washington reached an agreement over the THAAD's deployment in July previous year, declaring that the objective is to protect South Korea against North Korea's alleged missile threats.

THAAD, which is a ground-based missile system that can defend against short-, medium- and intermediate-range ballistic missiles at the terminal stage of flight, became operational in South Korea in May.

Lockheed Martin, the prime contractor for the THAAD system, said it has the ability to intercept incoming missiles both inside and outside the Earth's atmosphere.

Joining the U.S. and its allies in condemning North Korea on its International Ballistic Missile (ICBM) test launch, India has called upon "North Korea to refrain from such actions that undermine international peace and stability".

Vice Admiral James Syring, a former director of the Missile Defense Agency, said in May the THAAD system has a 100% success rate in its 13 flight tests so far.

The MEA issued statements following the European Union and Japan's call for further sanctions against North Korea after Pyongyang tested an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in defiance of repeated United Nations resolutions.
