North Korean Missile Can Reach US, UK

  • According to MPs, the North Korea ballistic missile could reach the shores of the UK within 6-18 months. However, they have also described Kim Jong-un, the country's leader, as although ruthless but also rational and could be made to change his mind through the policy of containment and deterrence. As per the report of Commons' Defence Select Committee, there is no such evidence that the Asian country can use the missiles with nuclear warheads. Up till now, North Korea has done 6 nuclear tests so far and the country being in the possession of a ballistic missile can put the whole of the US in its striking range.
