North Korea Claims to Have Missiles That Can Reach the U.S.

Responding to recent defense pact between the U.S. and South Korea


North Korea claimed on Tuesday that it has deployed "strategic rocket forces" that are able to strike targets in the continental US.

Pyongyang's declaration comes two days after the South Korean government signed an upgraded defence pact with Washington that permits it to develop conventional missiles with a range of 497 miles.
