North Korea tests 2 400-km ranged ballistic missiles; irks United States
According to media reports, the first launch traveled only about 150km (90 miles) before landing in the sea and was considered a failure. But the second missile, launched hours later, flew its full course of around 400km and reached an altitude of 1,000km, marking the nuclear-armed nation's most successful missile test to date.
"We intend to raise our concerns at the UN to bolster international resolve in holding [North Korea] accountable for these provocative actions," said Mr Kirby in a statement.
North American Defense Command (Norad), which tracked the missiles, determined they did not pose a threat to North American territories.
