The Pentagon is warning that North Korea continues to boost its missile capabilities.
In a statement to the Senate Wednesday, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear and Missile Defense Policy, Leonor Tomero, said North Korea is developing and deploying "more capable ICBMs and SLBMs."
She added that the regime will pose an increasing threat and that it will try to drive a wedge between the U.S. and its allies.
She also warned of rising threats from Iran, Russia and China.
