US still believes missile launch from North Korea is possible

The Pentagon believes North Korea may be poised for a missile test launch in the coming days, even after the celebration of its founder’s birthday took place yesterday, without incident.

The North has threatened nuclear attacks on the United States, South Korea and Japan, after new U.N. sanctions were imposed in response to its latest nuclear arms test in February.

The US has also confirmed President Barack Obama will meet with South Korean President Park Geun-Hye next month at the White House, to discuss economic and security issues, including “countering the North Korean threat.”
