Report: North Korea Claims Its Rockets Can Reach US

North Korea is claiming it has rockets that can hit the continental U.S. on the heels of South Korea and the U.S. signing a missile defense pact, Reuters reports.

According to Jack Kim’s story, observers believe North Korea is developing a long-range missile with a range of 4,160 miles.

South Korea announced its agreement with the U.S. Sunday, under which the U.S. will help South Korea in doubling the current range limit of its ballistic missiles to 497 miles, aimed at deterring North Korea.

Currently, the U.S. has more than 20,000 troops stationed in South Korea for defense against North Korea, Kim reported.

Last month, the U.S. signed a separate missile defense pact with Japan to deploy a second X-band radar.
