Europe could soon be within range of North Korean missiles - France

TOULON, France (Reuters) - France’s defence minister warned on Tuesday that North Korea could develop ballistic missiles that reach Europe sooner than expected.

“The scenario of an escalation towards a major conflict can not be discarded,” Florence Parly said in a speech to the French military.

“Europe risks being within range of (North Korean President) Kim Jong Un’s missiles sooner than expected,” she said.
