Seoul: South Korea said on Sunday North Korea’s latest missile launch threatened the entire world, warning of a punitive action if it leads to further provocations such as a nuclear test or a long-range missile launch.

“North Korea showing a variety of offensive missiles at yesterday’s military parade and daring to fire a ballistic missile today is a show of force that threatens the whole world,” South Korea’s foreign ministry said in a statement.

A North Korean missile “blew up almost immediately” on its test launch on Sunday, the US Pacific Command said, hours before US vice-president Mike Pence was due in South Korea for talks on the North’s increasingly defiant arms programme. Reuters
