US Prepares to Intercept Ballistic Missiles from N. Korea
The United States has confirmed that it has been conducting tests on a system to intercept ballistic missiles from North Korea.
The director of the US Missile Defense Agency, Patrick O'Reilly, said at a House Armed Services Committee hearing on Thursday that it has been conducting interceptor missile tests in Alaska and California.
O'Reilly said "this roughly equates to the geometry of a launch out of North Korea and an intercept coming out of Fort Greely, Alaska."
Meanwhile, the US deputy assistant secretary of defense for nuclear and missile defense policy, Bradley Roberts, said at the hearing that the US has been improving its ground-based midcourse defense system against threats that could emerge from countries such as North Korea and Iran.
