N. Korea: “We Will be Testing Missiles Weekly!”

North Korea will continue to test missiles despite international condemnation and increasing military tensions with the United States, a senior official has told the BBC.

“We’ll be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis,” Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-Ryol told the BBC’s John Sudworth in Pyongyang.

He said that an “all out war” would result if the US was “reckless enough to use military means”.

Earlier, US Vice-President Mike Pence said his country’s “era of strategic patience” with North Korea was over.

He arrived in Seoul on Sunday hours after North Korea carried out a failed missile launch.

Tensions have been escalating on the peninsula, with heated rhetoric from both North Korea and the US.

Speaking alongside South Korea’s acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn later, Mr Pence said North Korea should not test US President Donald Trump.

“Just in the past two weeks, the world witnessed the strength and resolve of our new president in actions taken in Syria and Afghanistan,” Mr Pence said.

“North Korea would do well not to test his resolve or the strength of the armed forces of the United States in this region.”

He reiterated US support for South Korea, telling his host: “We are with you 100%.”
