North Korean missile threat forced Singapore Airlines to reroute flights

North Korean missile threat forced Singapore Airlines to reroute flights”

North Korea has tested an Intercontinental ballistic missile, which posed no threat to the USA and its allies, said the Pentagon.

The crew of Cathay Pacific CX893, which was traveling to Hong Kong from San Francisco, reportedly saw the missile from their plane as it was passing over Japan and alerted the country's air traffic control.

To finance the extra budget, the government plans to sell about 1.2 trillion yen of construction bonds and cover most of the rest with leftover debt servicing money.

"We have been in contact with relevant authorities and industry bodies as well as with other carriers".

'So, I just discovered that the North Koreans DID tamper with their #Hwasong15 launch photo's!

Korean Air didn't provide details of the flights that saw the "flash", or say where they were at the time of the event.

Singapore Airlines changed a flight route between Asia and the USA earlier this year because of fears over North Korean missile launches. North Korea likely chooses splashdown points for each stage that avoid airline routes, said Vipin Narang, an expert on nuclear strategy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The flights, one from San Francisco and the other from Los Angeles, were both headed for Incheon, the main airport serving Seoul, South Korea. "At the moment, no one is changing any routes or operating parameters", the airline said in a statement. One of the missiles just missed hitting an Air France plane flying from Tokyo to Paris, France 24 reported.

Monday's air exercise between the USA and South Korea, called Vigilant Ace, will last for five days.

"Stars just don't look that different a few miles apart, and we have no reason to disbelieve that this launch was from the Pyongsong region north of Pyongyang", McDowell said.

He emphasized the necessity of dialogue among concerned parties over the North's nuclear program, arguing none of the relevant countries now trust each other. "As long as there is a continuous hostile policy against my country by the USA and as long as there are continued war games on our doorstep, then there will not be negotiations", Han Tae Song said at the time.

Moscow believes the regular drills, combined with Washington's saber-rattling, are "provoking Pyongyang into taking some rash action" after months of restraint, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday. Hwasong-15, according to North Korean state media, reached an altitude of 4,475 kilometers (2,800 miles), and put the "whole" United States mainland in its range. Lavrov slammed the comment as a "bloodthirsty tirade".
