The crackpot dictator accused the United States of “browbeating” countries “that have no nukes” as hostilities escalate.

nuclearKim Jong-Un has boasted that his latest missile test was aimed at ensuring North Korea is capable of firing a “large scale nuclear warhead”.

The secretive state fired a ballistic missile that landed in the sea near Russia on Sunday.

Donald Trump has warned that a “major, major” conflict with North Korea is on the cards and warned that Russia would also be angered by the test.

But in response Kim Jong-Un has accused the US of “browbeating” countries that “have no nukes”.

The crackpot dictator warned the US not to misjudge the reality that its mainland is in the North’s “sighting range for strike.”

The latest war of words has increased fears that the three controversial leaders in the US, Russia and North Korea will spark nuclear meltdown.

North Korea’s news agency said the missile launched on Sunday was fired at the highest angle so as not to affect the security of neighbouring countries.

It flew 490 miles reaching an altitude of 1,312 miles, the KCNA said.

“If the U.S. awkwardly attempts to provoke the DPRK, it will not escape from the biggest disaster in the history”, Kim added.

North Korea is believed to be developing an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of carrying a nuclear warhead and reaching the mainland United States.

The U.S. military’s Pacific Command said the type of missile that was fired was “not consistent with an intercontinental ballistic missile”.

The United Nations Security Council is due to meet on Tuesday to discuss North Korea’s latest missile launch, diplomats said on Sunday, which was requested by the United States and allies South Korea and Japan.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley called the launch a message by Pyongyang to South Korea after the election of President Moon Jae-in, who took office on Wednesday.

“You first have to get into Kim Jong Un’s head — which is, he’s in a state of paranoia, he’s incredibly concerned about anything and everything around him,” Haley told ABC’s “This Week” program, referring to North Korea’s leader.

The report on the missile’s flight was largely consistent with South Korean and Japanese assessments on Sunday that it flew 435 miles and reached an altitude of more than 1,243 miles, which is further and higher than an intermediate-range missile tested in February from the same region, northwest of Pyongyang.

“North Korea’s latest successful missile test represents a level of performance never before seen from a North Korean missile,” Washington-based monitoring project,38 North, said in an analysis issued on Sunday.
