South Korea has confirmed that North Korea has fired an intermediate-range ballistic missile over Hokkaido, the second largest and northernmost island of Japan.

Speaking at a briefing in Beijing, Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman, Hua Chunying, commented that tensions between North Korea and the rest of the world were “now at a tipping point approaching a crisis.”

President Trump commented on the incident:

“The world has received North Korea’s latest message loud and clear: this regime has signalled  its contempt for its neighbours, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards  of acceptable international behaviour.”

President Trump has stated that all options are on the table in response to the incident. President Trump said:

“The world has received North Korea’s latest message loud and clear: this regime has signalled its contempt for its neighbours,  for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable international behaviour.”

President Trump continued:

“Threatening and destabilising actions only increase the North Korean regime’s isolation in the region and among all nations of the world. All options are on the table”.

Meanwhile, following a forty-minute phone call with President Trump, Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, called on the United Nations to place more pressure on the rogue communist state:

“We must immediately hold an emergency meeting at the United Nations, and further strengthen  pressure against North Korea.”

Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of North Korea, has confirmed that the incident was a clear warning to the United States and her allies:

“The US should clearly understand its rival. Its threats may work on some countries, and some others have yielded to the bluffing of the US. The DPRK remains unshakeable in its stand not to put its nuclear deterrent on the negotiating table nor flinch even an inch from the road of bolstering the nuclear force.”
