North Korea declared on Wednesday conducting a successfully tested new type of missiles that can reach the United States mainland.

North Korean state media announced the news after leader Kim Jong Un ordered the launch of the Hwasong-15 missile, which reached the highest altitude ever recorded by a North Korean missile. Kim said North Korea had “finally realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force,” according to state news agency KCNA.

By carrying out this missile test, North Korea has disregarded international sanctions imposed on its weapons program.

The UN Security Council is due to convene in an emergency session.
