North Korean missiles are capable of reaching the US military bases across the Pacific in case of direct confrontation, North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un said after a ballistic missile test on Thursday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, South Korean media reported that Pyongyang carried out a successful launch of the medium long-range strategic ballistic missile named Hwasong-10.

"We have the sure capability to attack in an overall and practical way the Americans in the Pacific operation theater," Kim was quoted as saying by North's KCNA news agency.

In early January, North Korea successfully carried out a hydrogen bomb test, putting a satellite into orbit a month later, in violation UN Security Council resolutions.

In March, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution that imposes additional sanctions on North Korea, aiming to affect multiple sectors of the country’s economy. The same month, North Korea conducted multiple short and medium-range rocket launches.

Last month, Pyongyang urged Seoul to accept its offer to hold military talks and called for joint steps to carry out measures for national unity, citing the need to ease tensions on the Korean peninsula. South Korea rejected the proposal, demanding "a real turn" toward denuclearization.
