“They are preparing for a new test of a longer-range missile. They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the western coast of the United States,” Morozov a Russian Lawmaker said. “In the near future, they are going to carry out, as far as we understand, yet another launch of a missile, but this time with a longer range,” the lawmaker said, adding that the general mood in Pyongyang is “rather belligerent.”
Morozov stressed that the situation demands a prompt intervention of all interested states, especially those represented in that region, in order to prevent full-scale hostilities. The Russian delegation was on an official visit in the North Korean capital on October 2-6, the Russian embassy in North Korea said earlier. The lawmakers discussed bilateral cooperation with the Russian ambassador to North Korea.
