President Tsai Ing-wen has issued a harsh condemnation against North Korea for its missile launch on Wednesday morning. At 3am, North Korea launched the Hwasong-15 missile into Japan's economic zone waters.
North Korean state media claimed the intercontinental ballistic missile was topped with a super-large heavy warhead capable of striking the US mainland. The missile soared 4,500 kilometers high, the highest altitude recorded by a North Korean missile.
President Tsai said the national security team was aware of the launch as soon as it took place. She has ordered government agencies to closely monitor the situation.
Tsai condemned North Korea for going against a UN resolution and for posing a threat to regional security. The president said Taiwan will be in close contact with other nations about the latest information. Taiwan will also support all UN Security Council resolutions regarding the issue.
