North Korea launched an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile on Friday. The missile was detected, closely tracked, and determined not to be a danger to North America. However, this launch served as yet another reminder of North Korea’s continued threat to the United States and our allies with their missile program. The missile was launched from Mupyong-ni, and traveled about 620 miles before splashing down in the Sea of Japan.

General Lori Robinson, Commander of the North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command issued the following statement:

As the Commander responsible for defending the homeland, I want to assure our citizens that USNORTHCOM remains unwavering in our confidence that we can fully defend the United States against this ballistic missile threat. At NORAD and USNORTHCOM, we stand this watch each and every day We are fully committed to working closely with our Republic of Korea and Japanese allies to maintain the security of their region and our great Nation.
