Donald Trump Calls For Emergency Security Meeting After Missile Launches By North Korea

US president Donald Trump called an emergency meeting on the Fourth of July to formulate a ‘measured response’ to North Korea’s first intercontinental ballistic missile test, amid fears it could reach as far as Alaska. North Korea used the occasion to declare that it had finally achieved its dream of building an intercontinental ballistic missile, saying it would ‘fundamentally put an end to the US nuclear war threat and blackmail’. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson later confirmed the latest missile test was truly with an intercontinental ballistic missile.The meeting which holds today will be to discuss potential responses to the launch, including sending additional troops to the region and possibly more sanctions. North Korea has long sought to build a rocket capable of delivering an atomic warhead to the United States – something Trump has previously vowed ‘won’t happen’.Photo Credit: Getty
