With recent threats of an attack on the United States coming out of North Korea U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin says U.S. intelligence is keeping an eye on the situation.
North Korea says it is ready to fire long-range nuclear armed missiles at Washington. Durbin says it’s unlikely the country has the capability. Iran has also been accused of developing weapons-grade uranium. Durbin says there is a close eye on that country as well. He says they are literally watching Iran every minute of every day.
On Thursday, the U.N. Security Council punished North Korea over its latest nuclear tests with sanctions targeting the country’s economy.
