SEOUL, July 5 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's Defense Ministry on Wednesday confirmed North Korea's test of a new intercontinental ballistic missile, identifying it as an upgraded version of its two-stage KN-17 or Hwasong-12 missile.

During a parliamentary briefing, Minister Han Min-koo warned that North Korea's reckless provocation will lead to its "self-destruction," calling its latest missile test a clear violation of U.N. resolutions.
