İrem UZUN -TDO- North Korea warned Saturday that Japan could again see missiles overflying the country “in the not distant future” after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called Pyongyang’s latest test of a “large multiple-rocket launcher” a “ballistic missile” launch. North Korean state media blasted Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe as an “imbecile and political dwarf”.
North Korea’s threat and insult came after it tested what it called a "super-large multiple launch rocket system", with South Korea reporting that two projectiles came down in the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea. In the wake of the launch, which was supervised by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Mr. Abe termed the fired weapons "ballistic missiles" that violated UN resolutions, which bans North Korea from firing ballistic missiles and said"North Korea's repeated launches of ballistic missiles are a serious defiance to not only our country but also the international community".
However, the North insisted it was testing a "super-large multiple-rocket launcher". "It can be said that Abe is the only one idiot in the world and the most stupid man ever known in history as he fails to distinguish a missile from multiple launch rocket system while seeing the photo-accompanied report," a foreign ministry official said in a statement carried by state news agency KCNA. "Abe may see what a real ballistic missile is in the not distant future and under his nose... Abe is none other than a perfect imbecile," it added.
