Russia expects North Korea to launch short-range missile test soon, which could reach the west coast of the United States, said Anton Morozov, a member of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Foreign Affairs Committee.
Morozov, who has been visiting North Korea for the past few days, said in Moscow today that Pyongyang authorities are preparing a new rocket test.
– Their mood is quite fierce. They gave us mathematical calculations and believe that this rocket can reach the west coast of the United States, said Morozov.
US President Donald Trump threatened North Korea with a fierce response if he made his announcement to launch a missile to the US territory of Guam.
Pyongyang authorities failed to realize this announcement but launched missiles over Japan.
So far it has been thought that North Korea has no projectile that could hit Hawaii, and even fewer major US cities on the west coast, such as Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco.
