North Korea Threatens Another Missile Test

North Korea has vowed to continue testing missiles, defying international condemnation and tensions with the United States.

The country’s Vice-Foreign Minister, Han Song-Ryol, said the tests would be conducted on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis.

This comes as U.S. Vice President, Mike Pence, who is visiting South Korea, warned North Korea earlier that the United States was running out of strategic patience against the country.

Tensions have been escalating on the Peninsula, with heated rhetoric from both North Korea and the U.S.

North Korea has accelerated its nuclear and missile tests in recent years, despite international condemnation and UN sanctions.

It aims to be able to put a nuclear warhead on an intercontinental ballistic missile that can reach targets around the world, including the U.S.
