North Korea launched a new ICBM on November 29, claiming it can carry a nuclear warhead to anywhere on the USA mainland.

North Korea is also known to employ deceptive shipping practices, including ship-to-ship transfers. He has stressed the importance of building bonds with North Korean officials, rather than cutting off contact. "The US works every day to keep the world's most risky weapons out of the hands of the most unsafe people", the tweet said.
