Compounding the nuclear issue? North Korea pulled off its first successful intercontinental ballistic missile launch in early July, testing a Hwasong-14 missile that traveled 580 miles and reached an altitude of 1,741 miles during a 37-minute flight. Based on that test, analysts concluded that the Hwasong-14 might be able to travel more than 4,000 miles, putting Alaska in its range, along with countries like Japan. This radius even potentially puts Moscow at risk. Another successful ICBM test followed at the end of last month; North Korea issued commemorative stamps to celebrate.
