Matsuno Government Secretary General: Rocket launched by North Korea probably flew 1,000 kilometers
TOKYO, November 18 – RIA Novosti. Hirokazu Matsuno, secretary general of the Japanese government, said at a press conference that the ballistic missile fired by North Korea probably flew 1,000 kilometers, flew at an altitude of 6,000 kilometers, and the missile is believed to be flying in an cantilevered orbit.
He also noted that the rocket flew in a hinged orbit. Such a trajectory means a more vertical launch of the rocket, which reduces the flight distance.
Earlier, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said that there was a strong protest against North Korea. Until this time, there is no information about the damage to aircraft and ships. The rest of the analysis continues.
North Korea has launched 34 missiles since the beginning of the year. Almost half of them, 15 of which have occurred since September 25, including the launch of a medium-range ballistic missile of the Hwaseong-12 type, flying over Japan and setting a record 4.5 thousand kilometers for the DPRK, the flight altitude was 1000. kilometer.
The DPRK says all military activity is a response to “provocation” from South Korea, which has recently been conducting active military exercises, both independently and in partnership with the United States and Japan.
