By staff

Washington DC – According to media sources in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), the DPRK Academy of Defense Science reports that a successful test of an inter-continental ballistic missile, called the Hwasong-14, was carried out July 4.

The report states that the rocket was launched from the northwest part of the DPRK, making a “39-minute flight along its pre-set trajectory before accurately hitting the target waters in the open sea in the East Sea of Korea.”

Chairman of the Workers Party of Korea Kim Jong Un was present at the test site, and observed the launch.

The report concludes, “The DPRK will fundamentally put an end to the U.S. nuclear war threat and blackmail and reliably defend the peace and stability of the Korean peninsula and the region.”
