A top U.S. military official said North Korea will one day have nuclear-armed missiles capable of reaching all its enemies.
U.S. Army General Vincent Brooks is the commander of the U.S. Pacific Command. He told members of Congress the North Koreans are working to improve their nuclear missile
Brooks told the Senate Armed Services Committee, "Over time, I believe we are going to see them acquire [ICBM] capabilities if they are not stopped."
ICBM stands for intercontinental ballistic missile. These missiles can be fired from one continent and land on another.
Brooks did not say when the North Koreans would be able to launch long-range nuclear missiles.
U.S. Senator John McCain asked Brooks about "the immaturity and unpredictability" of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The general said Kim does not like taking advice from top
Brooks also told lawmakers there is "some evidence" North Korea is getting help from Iran. He said that was "very dangerous for the world, very dangerous for the region."
General Brooks has been nominated by U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter to lead the U.S. military in South Korea.
