North Korea tests missile it claims can reach 'anywhere in the world'

http://www.cnn.com/2017/07/03/asia/north-korea-missile-japan-waters/index.html

How true is claim?

Euan Graham, director of the International Security Program at Sydney's Lowy Institute, said that one apparently successful test doesn't necessarily mean that North Korea has the global capability it claimed.
"If the North Koreans are claiming they can launch an ICBM (to) anywhere in the world, that needs to be looked at through a technical lens," he said, using the acronym for intercontinental ballistic missile.
"One successful test doesn't get them over the bar; they're claiming more than they can deliver at the moment."

    I think they are timing this for political impact and maybe stretching the truth a bit.  That said, it feels that it's a matter of time where their claim will definitely be true as they are actively improving that technology.  Nuc and long range is a dangerous combo for NK.
