The intelligence community is now monitoring Iran's Semnan launch center, located about 140 miles east of Tehran, where officials say the "first and second stage airframes" have been assembled on a launch pad and a space launch is expected "at any time", according to the official.

The U.S.is pressing Russian Federation to end a program for taking 30,000 to 50,000 North Korean migrant workers, in order to "deprive Kim Jong Un of all his money", Toloraya said.

Officials there past year displayed a sphere-shaped device the regime described as a miniaturized warhead, but there has been no public confirmation that this milestone has been achieved.
The US government, on the other hand, reportedly assessed that the Hwasong-14's range could range between 7,000 and 9,500 km, allowing it to reach major US cities on the country's west coast, including Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The last one, in September, had an estimated yield of 20 to 30 kilotons, more than double the explosive force of any previous test.
The North said the missile, that was launched on July 4, the US Independence Day, could hit anywhere in the world.
