North Korea says it needs nuclear missiles capable of striking heart of US mainland to prevent invasionNorth Korea has defended its weapons programme, saying it needs the capability to launch intercontinental missiles at the heart of the United States to prevent an invasion. In a transcript of a statement by the North’s foreign minister, Ri Yong-ho, Pyongyang called new UN sanctions “fabricated” and warned there would be “strong follow-up measures” and acts of justice. The statement said the North’s intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July proved that the entire United States was in its firing range, and those missiles were a legitimate means of self-defence.
