The Russian Defense Ministry has rejected claims that North Korea’s latest ballistic missile test poses a danger to Moscow as it landed about 500 kilometers from its border.

Axar.az reports citing to PressTV “This missile launch represented no danger for the Russian Federation,” the ministry said in a statement on Sunday carried by official Russian news agencies.

“The Russian missile attack warning systems followed the ballistic target during its 23-minute flight until its landing in the central part of the Sea of Japan (about 500 kilometers from the Russian territory),” the statement added.
North Korea launched an intermediate-range ballistic missile from the northwestern city of Kusong at around 5:30 am (2030 GMT Saturday) and it flew about 700 kilometers (435 miles) before landing in the sea between North Korea and Japan, the South Korean military said in a statement.
