United States of America has North Korea missile threat covered: Pentagon Assured

​The Pentagon Today repeated reassurances that the United States and its regional allies are well protected against any threat from North Korean missiles, after Pyongyang conducted a new nuclear test.

US Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis

“We take them at their word and have built a defensive architecture that assumes that they have the capability but we have never actually seen it demonstrated.”

Washington is also working with Seoul to install a missile defense system known as THAAD in South Korea, though the move has infuriated Beijing, which says the hardware poses a significant threat to regional security.
