“They are preparing for new tests of a long-range missile. They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the west coast of the United States,” Anton Morozov said on Friday after returning from a visit to North Korea’s capital of Pyongyang.

He was accompanied with another two other Russian lawmakers who made the trip from October 2-6.

“As far as we understand, they intend to launch one more long-range missile in the near future. And in general, their mood is rather belligerent,” Morozov added.
