(FOX NEWS) – The ballistic missile that North Korea claimed it successfully test-fired over the weekend traveled farther than any other missile launched by the rogue nation, a Pentagon spokesman told reporters on Monday.

The launch represented a “clear grave threat to our national security,” Capt. Jeff Davis said.

The missile traveled roughly 300 miles into the Sea of Japan but did not enter Japanese waters. It was launched on a “high trajectory” traveling for 14 minutes before splashing down, one U.S. official told Fox News.

The KN-11-mod 2 missile was launched from land in the northwest region of the communist regime Saturday evening. North Korea’s 33-year-old dictator, Kim Jong Un, was present at the test site, according to officials.
