North Korea defined an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) as a rocket with a range of more than 6400 km, in an article in the Rodong Sinmun, an organ of the ruling Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK), on Sunday.
The report came less than three weeks after the North claimed that it had “successfully carried out the test-fire of inter-continental ballistic rocket Hwasong-14” on July 4, without revealing its maximum range.
