A North Korean scud-type missile, with a range of 800-900 kilometers, would land in its target site within ten minutes if fired at a standard angle of 45 degrees.
Lee said it's likely that North Korea fired either Hwasong-12 missile or a solid-fuel Pukguksong-2, both of which were tested in May.
Russia has also said it believes the missile was medium range.
Experts say the missile could reach a maximum range of 6,700km on a standard trajectory, meaning it would be able to hit Darwin, which is 5,750km from Pyongyang.US Pacific Command confirmed the test and said it was a land-based, intermediate range missile that flew for 37 minutes.It was estimated to have reached an altitude that 'greatly exceeded' 1553 miles (2,500 kilometres), Japan said, prompting arms control specialist Jeffrey Lewis to respond on Twitter: 'That's it. An ICBM that can hit Anchorage not San Francisco, but still.' David Wright, of the Union of Concerned Scientists, wrote on the organisation's allthingsnuclear blog that the available figures implied the missile 'could reach a maximum range of roughly 6,700 km on a standard trajectory'The device came down in the Sea of Japan within the country's exclusive economic zone, Tokyo's defense ministry said in a statement, waters extending 200 nautical miles from its coast.In an announcement of the missile test, North Korean officials called the launch, which leader Kim Jong-un supervised, a 'glistening miracle'.The 'landmark' test of a Hwasong-14 missile was overseen by leader Kim Jong-Un, an emotional female announcer said on state Korean Central Television.
