U.S. Says Trump 'Can't Imagine Russia Is Pleased' With North Korea Missile

North Korea fired on Sunday a ballistic missile from a region near its west coast.

WASHINGTON, May 14 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump “cannot imagine Russia is pleased” with North Korea’s latest missile test on Sunday, as it landed closer to Russia than to Japan, the White House said in a statement.

“With the missile impacting so close to Russian soil – in fact, closer to Russia than to Japan – the President cannot imagine that Russia is pleased,” the White House said in its statement.

The launch served as a call for all nations to implement stronger sanctions against reclusive North Korea, the White House added.
