The United States and South Korea responded to North Korea's successful test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) by conducting a joint "show of force" Tuesday night.
The two countries responded to the North Korean launch with a show of force involving missiles being fired into the South China Sea, Reuters reported.
"The deep strike precision capability enables the (South Korean)-U.S. alliance to engage the full array of time critical targets under all weather conditions," the U.S. Army said in a statement.
Reuters reports that the Army Tactical Missile System, a surface-to-surface missile, and South Korea's Hyunmoo Missile II, a ballistic missile, were involved in the test.
On Tuesday morning, North Korea's government released a statement claiming a successful test launch and vowing that its weapon could “reach anywhere in the world.”
The test came days before President Trump's meeting with world leaders at the annual G-20 summit in Europe later this week.
