“North Korea remains the most urgent threat to regional stability”. He added: "Diplomacy remains the lead. However, we have a responsibility to our allies and our nation to showcase our unwavering commitment while planning for the worst-case scenario.” “If called upon, we are ready to respond with rapid, lethal, and overwhelming force at a time and place of our choosing.
The Hwasong-14 ICBM, which the North first tested on July 4, is an intermediate range missile that hit Alaska and Hawaii, and more secretly can be fired.
