MOSCOW - North Korea is preparing to test a long-range missile which it believes can reach the west coast of the United States, a Russian lawmaker just returned from a visit to Pyongyang was quoted as saying on Friday.

"They are preparing for new tests of a long-range missile. They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the west coast of the United States," Anton Morozov, a member of the Russian lower house of parliament's international affairs committee, told RIA, a state news agency.



"As far as we understand, they intend to launch one more long-range missile in the near future. And in general, their mood is rather belligerent."
