rocket reached four thousand kilometers high altitude never before seen from a north korean weapon let's go straightaway live to our correspondent kathy novak is in seoul and kathy tell us more about this announcement of what north korea are saying. well north korea is celebrating it as a priceless victory as you mentioned saying that this is a new type of i.c.b.m. it's the third time that north korea has launched an intercontinental range ballistic missile this year and it says that this is the hostle of fifteen making further advances from the haasan fourteen missiles that were launched back in july it says this is able to carry a super heavy large warhead it also claims that the missile accurately hit its targets washing down and waters off of japan after reaching a maximum altitude of almost about four and a half thousand kilometers that's about the estimation of the south korean joint chiefs of staff as well and what that means according to analysts is that if indeed
this were fired at a normal trajectory that would put the u.s. mainland all of it in range and we know that north korea's ultimate goal is to mount a nuclear warhead on the end of an i.c.b.m. that can be delivered to the united states and what north korea is claiming in this instance is that with this launch it has completed its goal of completing that nuclear program saying it is completed the state nuclear force the cause of building a rocket power in response south korea launched drills of its own combined drills between the army the navy and the air force the launch the armed forces launched three missiles to simultaneously hitting a simulated target the message from south korea there to north korea is that the missile launch was detected immediately and south korea says it knew in advance that this was going to happen and if necessary it does have the capability to take
out a north korean missile launch site cover tell us more about global and regional reaction . well there have been phone calls held between u.s. president donald trump and the leaders of south korea and japan all of them of course condemning this missile launch in the strongest terms donald trump saying simply that the united states would handle it in effect that they will take care of it didn't go much further than that the u.s. defense secretary james mattis said that this is all part of a research and development program from north korea that wants to develop missiles that can hit anywhere in the world and indeed when we see these sorts of test firings it is in part a demonstration from north korea to the world that first of all sanctions and pressure do not seem to be working that north korea is continuing to press ahead with its missile and nuclear program but it is also a research and development move on the part of north korea as dance man is is
saying that it wants to improve its technology here it saying it's improving new technology with its i.c.b.m.'s so that is of course a major concern to the leaders here as well the president mungy and held a emergency meeting of the national security council in the early hours of the morning this missile was launched in the middle of the night it around quarter past three a.m. south korean time and monday and has said that what is his what his main concern is of miscalculation as these tensions keep being ratcheted up between north korea and the united states in particular noonday and does not want to see a preemptive strike from the united states that might cause north korea to retaliate by attacking this city seoul that donald trump seems to have stayed away for now at least from the fiery rhetoric that we've heard in the past when he's threatened north korea with a fire and fury simply saying that the united states will take care of it what that
will add up to in the end remains to be seen nick or atrophy very very much lou because remember reporting from seoul. the head of the catholic church pope francis is in min miles largest city of yangon he delivered a mass to thousands of people many lined the route to greet him as he was brought into the venue on tuesday france's schooled for respect for the rights of all of mimosa ethnic groups as he appeared alongside the country's leader and sons who cheat but he avoided any direct mention of the hinge of muslim minority has more now from young. the pope conducting mass here and young gone in these grounds to tens of thousands of people christians from across the country came here to see the pope and this is their first opportunity to see him first and before he started the mass he drove through in his popemobile as it's known through the crowd behind me and then he went up to the stage and conducted the mass he also had a short family where there are broad themes like we've heard earlier in this trip
