Pentagon Says It Detected Ballistic Missile Launch From North Korea
North Korea has carried out a number of missile launches and nuclear tests in recent months, all of which are considered to be in violation with relevant UN Security Council resolutions. The latest launch was carried out on July 4, when Pyongyang announced the successful launch of its first intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), the Hwasong-14, which traveled 933 kilometers (580 miles) before falling into the Sea of Japan.

The Kyodo news agency reported that the Japanese government was convening a national security council meeting in response to North Korea's launch.

According to Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga, the North Korean missile flew for about 45 minutes.
