  • TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - North Korea finally remove two Musudan missiles from their launch site, remarking a new stage after weeks of global concern.

    John Kerry, United States Foreign Minister, gave an ultimatum to North Korea that their missile launch test will be a “big mistake” and putting Seoul, Washington, and Tokyo threatened.

    A United States official, however, warned that the relocation is not a guaranty that the missile test will not take place. "It is too early to celebrate the good news," said Daniel Russel, Senior Director for Asian Affair in Homeland Security.

    Some others believe that the missile is taken to an alternative and non-operational launching site.

    Musudan Missile has 3,000 to 3,500 kilometers range, of which a test on it can dramatically increase the Korean Bay tension.

    North Korean movement coincides to the President Barack Obama's meeting with the South Korean President, Park Guen-hye, in the White House today. Both presidents will be having lunch and discussion, as well as a press conference.
