North Korea's ballistic missile test a "success" (and China is not happy)

13 February 2017 1:48 PM

China has condemned Sunday's "successful" testing of the medium- to long-range nuclear-capable missile.

Speaking from Hong Kong to Stephen Grootes on The MiddayReport, EWN's Steve Vines says the timing is significant as the test happened when US President Donald Trump was meeting the Japanese Premier in Washington.

The uncertainty over Trump's foreign policy has left people in the region unsettled as they know that if something terrible happens and it escalates into military action, they will bear the brunt of it.

In question is the really big problem as to whether they have yet to have devised a way of attaching a nuclear war head to these missiles, but nobody is sanguine about this.
