Nikki Haley
If you need any sort of intelligence to let you know that the rest of the world sees this as an ICBM, I'm happy to provide it. The international community can cut off the major sources of hard currency to the North Korean regime. We can restrict the flow of oil to their military and their weapons programs. We can increase air and maritime restrictions. We can hold senior regime officials accountable.feedback

We imagine [the North Koreans] to be incompetent buffoons, but…statistically speaking they are clocking in at a pretty decent number: Well over 50% of the launches work.feedback

Nikki Haley

Make no mistake, North Korea's launch of an ICBM is a clear and sharp military escalation. Their actions are quickly closing off the possibility of a diplomatic solution. The United States is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies. One of our capabilities lies with our considerable military forces. We will use them, if we must, but we prefer not to have to go in that direction.feedback

Christopher Hill

I think the Trump administration, frankly, is not known for long-term thinking, if I can put it kindly. In the short run, what they're very concerned about is the possibility that North Korea could have an ICBM that could hit the U.S. with a nuclear weapon. And they have to go and explain that to the American people in 2020 at the elections. If I were Donald Trump, I wouldn't want to do that. Obviously, he will blame Barack Obama – he does that on everything. But in this case, I think the American people will indeed ask the question you're asking, which is what is he going to do about it?feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

The United States strongly condemns North Korea's launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile. Testing an ICBM represents a new escalation of the threat to the United States, our allies and partners, the region, and the world. We intend to bring North Korea's provocative action before the UN Security Council and enact stronger measures to hold the DPRK accountable. The US seeks only the peaceful denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula and the end of threatening actions by North Korea.feedback

Christopher Hill

I think what they're really striving for is circumstances where the U.S. president has to look at the possibility of massive U.S. civilian casualties, courtesy of an ICBM hitting US mainland – and looking at that, might think twice about coming to the assistance of the South Korean military.feedback

Masahiro Ichikawa - Sumitomo Mitsui Asset Management

U.S. Secretary of State (Rex) Tillerson mentioning North Korea's intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) early this morning has caused the market to remain cautious. At the same time, the domestic market is retaining a fair degree of calm regarding the situation, while waiting to see how the United States responds to North Korea's actions.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

Testing an ICBM represents a new escalation of the threat to the United States, our allies and partners, the region, and the world. Global action is required to stop a global threat. Any country that hosts North Korean guest workers, provides any economic or military benefits, or fails to fully implement UN Security Council resolutions is aiding and abetting a dangerous regime. All nations should publicly demonstrate to North Korea that there are consequences to their pursuit of nuclear weapons.feedback

Cheng Xiaohe

The ICBM is not a Chinese red line – even the U.S. does not draw that line clearly and unequivocally.feedback

Minori Uchida - The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ

U.S. hi-tech shares have been getting a bit unstable of late and we had an ICBM during U.S. market holiday (on Tuesday). So the markets are becoming a bit risk averse.feedback

John Schilling

Still, this missile demonstrated a degree of performance that is beyond what is needed to reach Anchorage – or Pearl Harbor – but not quite sufficient to reliably reach targets on the U.S. West Coast.feedback

Jeffrey Lewis

This is a big deal: It's an ICBM, not a 'kind of' ICBM,' . And there's no reason to think that this is going to be the maximum range.feedback

Victor Cha

In the past five years, we have seen significant, and much more rapid-than-expected development of their ballistic missiles capability.feedback

Jeffrey Lewis

It's not a copy of a crappy Soviet engine, and it's not a pair of Soviet engines kludged together – it's the real thing. When they first unveiled the engine on March 18, they said that the 'world would soon see what this means.' I think we're now seeing them take that basic engine design and execute it for an ICBM.feedback

David Wright - European Commission

If the reports are correct, that same missile could reach a maximum range of roughly 6,700 km on a standard trajectory. That range would not be enough to reach the lower 48 states or the large islands of Hawaii, but would allow it to reach all of Alaska. It's already 4th of July in North Korea. I somewhat suspect they're shooting off some fireworks today specifically because of that.feedback

Boris Johnson

This is yet another reminder of the grave danger that North Korea poses to her neighbours, particularly Japan and South Korea, who are our friends and allies. Regardless of the variety of missile launched, any test of this kind breaks UN Security Council resolutions once again.feedback

Jeffrey Lewis

It's a very big deal – it looks like North Korea tested an ICBM. Even if this is a 7,000-km-range missile, a 10,000-km-range missile that can hit New York isn't far off.feedback

James Syring - the Pentagon

The intercept of a complex, threat-representative ICBM target is an incredible accomplishment for the GMD system and a critical milestone for this program. This system is vitally important to the defense of our homeland, and this test demonstrates that we have a capable, credible deterrent against a very real threat. I am incredibly proud of the warfighters who executed this test and who operate this system every day. This did represent a very real operational scenario in the Pacific.feedback

Jeff Davis - Navy

This is one element of a broader missile defense strategy that we can use to employ against potential threats.feedback

James Syring - the Pentagon

I was confident before the test that we had the capability to defeat any threat that they would throw at us. And I'm even more confident today after seeing the intercept test yesterday that we continue to be on that course. We want to exercise the GMD system with more than one interceptor to gather data for what a first interceptor would do in terms of kill and what the second interceptor would see.feedback

Dan Coats

We do not have constant, consistent ISR capabilities and so there are gaps, and the North Koreans know about these.feedback

Vincent Stewart - Defence Intelligence Agency

If left on its current trajectory, the regime will ultimately succeed in fielding a nuclear-armed missile capable of threatening the United States homeland. While nearly impossible to predict when this capability will be operational, the North Korean regime is committed and is on a pathway where this capability is inevitable.feedback

Nikki Haley

The conversations that I have had ... in dealing with Beijing is that if (North Korea) did something else and if it looked to be long-range, which this does, and if it looks like it is proactively leaning toward an ICBM, which it does, then we would take action. I believe that China will stay true to that and we will come together on how we're going to do that. We have not seen anything from them in the past week but we are encouraging them to continue moving forward.feedback

Nikki Haley

We are willing to talk, but not until we see a total stop of the nuclear process and of any tests there. If you are a country that is supplying or supporting North Korea we will call you out on it, we will make sure that everyone knows who you are and we will target sanctions toward you as well. The conversations that I have had... with my counterpart and in dealing with Beijing is that if (North Korea) did something else and if it looked to be long range, which this does, and if it looks like it is proactively leaning toward an ICBM, which it does, then we would take action.feedback

John Schilling

Would allow North Korea to conduct at least some of the testing necessary to develop an operational ICBM, without actually launching ICBMs, particularly if it includes the same rocket engines.feedback

Thomas O. Karako

They've clearly expressed their intent to have that [ICBM] capability. They've signaled and displayed missiles already that could have that capability. They haven't yet tested it in a full ICBM test. But it's one of those things folks are anticipating because they've come a long way over the past couple of decades.feedback

Joseph Cirincione

This was a promise of future capabilities more than a demonstration of existing missiles. We do not know if there is actually an ICBM in that canister. But it is certainly coming.feedback

Cristina Varriale

What is very significant is that the North Koreans have paraded two canisters that could possible contain ICBM. We are not sure how far down that path they have got, but now we know they have got the shell capacity. It could be a mock-up, - they could just be at the design stage, or they could have gone further. Having a solid fuel missiles means you can launch it far quicker, and it is easier to hide. The US is goading them but they are playing with the wrong country. The North Koreans are not going to back down.feedback

Cristina Varriale

The development of an ICBM would be particularly concerning for South Korea and Japan, because once the US know they can be targeted at home that may change their calculus as to whether they are prepared to help defend those countries if they are attacked by North Korea.feedback

Jeffrey Lewis

But if it's not an ICBM itself, it's bridge to an ICBM. What's inside those is a mystery too. I think this is that. But this year, with all this other stuff, nobody cares about something that can go only 100 or 200 km.feedback

Cheong Seong-chang

North Korea made sure that the world saw that they are working on ICBMs and what we saw at the military parade was a prototype ICBM that will become the real deal after the necessary tests in the future. The prototype we saw [Saturday] is longer in the length from the ones NK has previously shown the world.feedback

Kim Hong-kyun

Both sides agreed that despite the international community's warnings, if North Korea makes strategic provocations such as a nuclear test or an ICBM launch, there should be strong additional measures in accordance with United Nations Security Council resolutions.feedback

John Schilling

An ICBM variant of the Unha could be sufficiently similar to the space launch vehicle in that it would be very likely to succeed, making it a good candidate for a political demonstration even though the Unha would make for a poor missile. Even a failure might put the North on a path to success. This is literally rocket science, one of the archetypal hard problems, and success can only be achieved through perseverance.feedback

Kim Jong-un

Once he sees that there is any kind of sign of a tank or an imminent threat from America, then he would use his nuclear weapons with ICBM. All of my family members were a little bit frightened, you know, on that day. But I always told them that we have to try to be as peaceful as possible. We should carry the normal faces and normal feelings so that our plan of defection should not be noticed by anyone in the embassy.feedback

Karl Dewey - IHS

It appears that an ICBM won't be available until the medium-to-long-term, but the North does have a habit of surprising us.feedback

Karl Dewey - IHS

Using computer modelling, we arrived at the tentative assessment that the reentry vehicle on the [ICBM] could survive atmospheric reentry.feedback

Kim Dong-yub

This was a comprehensive test for the first-stage rocket for an ICBM, and that is why it was dangerous. It appears that North Korea has worked out much of its development of the first-stage rocket booster.feedback

Jeffrey Lewis

The ICBM program is real. They've showed us their static engine test. They showed us the mock-up of the nuclear warhead. They have done everything short of actually testing the ICBM. When they do test it, the first time it will probably fail. But eventually it will work. And when it works, people are going to freak out.feedback

Allan von Mehren - Danske Bank

Any remarks made by Trump should be taken with a grain of salt. However, the combination of more hawkish security advisors in the U.S. administration and North Korea's progression in developing an Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) that could reach the US with a nuclear warhead points to a rising risk of a military confrontation.feedback

Thomas O. Karako

I think that this particular test, while falling short of an ICBM demonstration, ought be seen as a technological advance. If North Korea is getting solid rocket motors right, then that really is a potential step function to making it harder for the United States to target these things on the ground, because they're more mobile. Moreover if they can get the motors right, and they stack them and configure them with other motors in a multi-stage configuration, you may already have the pieces of an ICBM laying on the ground, even if they've not been tested altogether yet.feedback

Jeffrey Lewis

It's not a guarantee, but it's a really important step. It's the straw that stirs the drink. If we get any bright ideas about rolling into Pyongyang, they have this retaliatory capability. And that really enables them to use their theater capabilities much more aggressively because we're not going to want to escalate. So if they have an ICBM capability that they can rely upon, it could be very destabilizing.feedback

Han Min-Koo

We are keeping an eye out, thinking data and technology from the latest test can be applied (to an ICBM).feedback

Joshua Pollack

I don't recognise the missiles from this description. But as we saw in 2016, there's certainly a variety of active missile programmes underway in North Korea.feedback

Joshua Pollack

It's also possible that they are simply conducting field exercises with no plans to launch, or the option to launch if decided.feedback

Narushige Michishita

(North Korean leader) Kim Jong Un said in his New Year speech that North Korea will finalize the process of developing an ICBM, so South Korea knows security cooperation with Japan and the United States is pretty important. But if they are to upgrade cooperation ... the political problem might affect a decision to go ahead, especially on the Korean side.feedback

Ash Carter

Saying "We only would shoot them down ... if it was threatening, that is if it were coming toward our territory or the territory of our friends and allies.feedback

Jeffrey Lewis

There's a warren of tunnels under the nuclear site. And an ICBM can be launched from anywhere in the country because it's mobile. You might as well invade the country.feedback

Melissa Hanham

The bottom line is Pyongyang is much further along in their missile development than most people realize. The liquid engine test was astounding. For years, we knew that North Korea had a Soviet R-27 missile engine design. They re-engineered the design of that engine to double its propulsion.feedback

Melissa Hanham

Marked the year North Korea truly ramped up their WMD programme. I think we're going to see a [ICBM] flight test in 2017.feedback

Joshua Pollack

They're answering the public criticisms of U.S. experts.feedback

Kim Jong-un

S development of long-range missiles in 'final stages. Research and development of cutting-edge arms equipment is actively progressing and ICBM rocket test launch preparation is in its last stage.feedback
