Report says capability almost certain in 18 months, but suggests regime does not consider UK a threat
North Korea is almost certain to complete development within 18 months of ballistic missiles capable of reaching the UK, according to a Commons defence select committee report. The report says the missiles could potentially carry nuclear warheads and it says the UK has only a limited ballistic missile defence capability.
But it adds a crucial caveat: “The Ministry of Defence does not consider that the UK will be a target of North Korean nuclear missiles, as its regime does not believe the UK to be a threat.” The focus of North Korean military planning is mainly the US and South Korea, it says.
