The Japanese Defense Ministry said the ICBM landed about 93 miles northwest of Okushiri Island.
Still, Pentagon officials aren't taking North Korea's latest launch lightly as it's only a matter of time before the regime masters its missile re-entry capabilities - one of the most critical military milestones the North has left.
"Moreover, in cooperation with the authorities, Air France constantly analyzes potentially unsafe flyover zones and adapts its flight plans accordingly", the statement continued.
"This missile flew through busy airspace used by commercial airliners", Pentagon spokesman Capt. "It flew into space. All of this completely uncoordinated".
He indicated that North Korea's missiles pose threats to commercial aircraft, satellites, and fishing vessels, stressing that "responsible nations" coordinate such activities with the global community.
North Korea after decades of effort has a missile potentially capable of reaching the continental United States, but analysts say Pyongyang has yet to show the ICBM can inflict serious damage once it gets there.
Friday's ICBM test, which was North Korea's second ever, was determined to not pose a threat to North America by the USA military. Analysis of the flight data from Hwasong-14's second test has suggested that more of the USA mainland, including Los Angeles and Chicago, is now in range of Pyongyang's weapons. For instance, the U.S.is planning to conduct a Minuteman III ICBM test Wednesday, and the test was announced in advance.
