North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un says his country's test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile is a "gift" to "American bastards," AFP reported.
North Korea launched a Hwasong-14 ICBM on Monday, moving the regime closer to developing a nuclear weapon that can hit the United States.
The launch came just days after South Korean President Moon Jae-in met with President Trump at the White House. The two discussed ways to stop the North from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Tuesday that "global action is required to stop a global threat."
"Any country that hosts North Korean guest workers, provides any economic or military benefits, or fails to fully implement U.N. Security Council resolutions is aiding and abetting a dangerous regime," he said.
The U.S. and South Korea staged a show of force Tuesday night, launching missiles "into territorial waters of South Korea along the East Coast," according to the U.S. Army.
