North Korea said that it now has missiles capable of reaching the U.S. mainland on Tuesday after the U.S. and South Korea came to an agreement on an extended range for South Korean ballistic missiles just days before, CNN reported.
North Korea also said that the recent agreement between the U.S. and South Korea is increasing the risk of war on the Korean Peninsula, the New York Times reported.
North Korea claims that the strike zone of its rocket forces includes the U.S. and South Korean bases in Korea but also Japan, Guam and the U.S. mainland, CNN reported.
In the past, North Korea has launched missiles that it claims to be satellite launches but both South Korean and American officials believe those launches to be covers for ballistic missile tests, the New York Times reported.
