“North Korea has again breached international law. North Korea’s ruthless behavior poses a huge threat to international security,” Gabriel said in a statement.

North Korea said on Wednesday it successfully tested a powerful new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that put the entire U.S. mainland within range of its nuclear weapons.
