North Korea fired a projectile into the Sea of Japan on Wednesday morning, a South Korean Defense Ministry official told CNN. A U.S. official believes it was a ballistic missile.

The North Koreans are very close to being able to equip an ICBM with a nuclear warhead.

A senior White House official on Tuesday said: “The clock has now run out, and all options are on the table,” pointing to the failure of successive administrations’ efforts to negotiate an end to the country’s nuclear program.

They fired the missile after the warning.

A senior North Korean defector told NBC News Sunday that the country’s “desperate” dictator is prepared to use nuclear weapons to strike the United States and its allies.

Thae Yong Ho is very high profile and warned that  North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is “desperate in maintaining his rule by relying on his [development of] nuclear weapons and ICBM.”

“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,” he added in an exclusive interview on Sunday.

Thae was living in London and serving as North Korea’s deputy ambassador to the United Kingdom when he and his family defected to South Korea last August.

He was not directly involved in North Korea’s weapons program but believes his country “has reached a very significant level of nuclear development,” NBC News reported. He added that the world better be ready.
