North Korea says it has a missile that can hit the US mainland and ‘shake the world’

  • North Korea has conducted a flurry of short- and medium-range missile tests in 2022 alone.
  • The foreign ministry said Tuesday it has a missile that can reach the US and “shake the world.”
  • UN experts said there had been “a marked acceleration” in missile testing.

North Korea said it had a missile that can reach the US mainland and “shake the world.”

Since the start of the year, Pyongyang has conducted a flurry of missile tests, including seven in January, a feat the foreign ministry on Tuesday said were “remarkable achievements.”

North Korea said it tested the Hwasong-12, one of its most advanced intermediate-range missiles made in 2017, on January 30 — its first test since its creation. The country also said it had a long-range missile named the Hwasong-15, which it said can reach the US mainland. The Hwasong-15 has not been tested since it was made in 2017.

In a Tuesday statement, the foreign ministry said the larger missile can strike the US with ease.
