A fully developed ICBM could threaten the continental US.
North Korea made the identical claim, and said the SLBM KN-11, also known as the Pukguksong-1, or Polaris-1, was the base model for the latest launch, South Korean newspaper Hankyoreh reported Monday. Trump said that the USA "stands behind Japan, its great ally, 100 percent".

Finally, Gardner wrote, the United States should illuminate human rights abuses in North Korea by imposing sanctions on abusers and by supporting US and global efforts to provide credible information and communication tools for the North Korean people.
