In response to the overnight news that NK had conducted its first ever ICBM test, despite both Pindostan and Russia saying the Hwaswong 14 missile launched was at best an IRBM. Moments ago Tillerson issued a statement which said:

The problem is that NK is now not only nuclear-armed, but according to today’s events, it is close to being able to deliver the nuclear package to Pindostan. Which is why Tillerson stopped short of endorsing military action. Meanwhile as Tillerson was dictating, Reuters reported that according to the NK news agency, Pyongyang said it had conducted a test of a newly developed ICBM that can carry a large and heavy nuclear warhead and that the test successfully verified the warhead’s atmospheric re-entry.

Kim Jong Un further said the successful test completed the country’s strategic weapons capability that includes atomic and hydrogen bombs and ICBMs, and it will not negotiate with Pindostan to give up those weapons until Faschingstein abandons its hostile policy against NK, the news agency said. The NK leader also said he is “firmly determined and committed” to test an ICBM that can hit the Pindostani mainland within this year. Kim said that Pindostan must be upset with “gift package” that he sent for its Independence Day, and says he will send more in future. The NK news agency said that yesterday ICBM test showed the country’s capability of carrying newly-developed, large-sized nuclear warheads and that NK had tested an ICBM for re-entry capability.

Finally and most disturbingly, Reuters said that SK and Pindostan early on Wednesday “conducted an offensive ballistic missile drill aimed at striking the North’s leadership.” Bloomberg adds that SK and Pindostan conducted a joint ballistic-missile drill around 7am on Wednesday, shooting rockets into the Sea of Japan, to warn against NK’s continued provocation of ballistic-missile tests, SK’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement. The drill reportedly showed SK & Pindostan can hit NK’s leadership in “contingencies.” From the statement:

Eighth Pindo Army and SK military personnel conducted a combined event exercising assets countering NK’s destabilizing and unlawful actions on Jul 4. This exercise utilized the Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) and the Republic of Korea Hyunmoo Missile II, which fired missiles into territorial waters of South Korea along the East Coast. The system can be rapidly deployed and engaged. The deep strike precision capability enables the SK/Pindo Alliance to engage the full array of time critical targets under all weather conditions. The SK/Pindo Alliance remains committed to peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula and throughout the Asia-Pacific. The Pindo commitment to the defense of the ROK in the face of threats is ironclad.

The drill was ordered by SK Pres Moon with Pres Trump’s approval. A video of the missile launch is below:
