North Korea fired a solid-fuel ballistic missile Sunday, May 21, 2017, that can be harder for outsiders to detect before launch and later said the test was hailed as perfect by leader Kim Jong Un. The official Korean Central News Agency confirmed Monday, May 22, the missile was a Pukguksong-2, a medium-to-long range ballistic missile also launched in February. South Korea and the U.S. had earlier described Sunday's missile as medium-range. (AP Photo/Ahn Young-joon, File)

FILE - In this Saturday, April 15, 2017 file photo, people watch a live television program showing North Korea's missiles with letters reading "Pukguksong," or Polaris, during a parade in Pyongyang, North Korea, at the Seoul train station in Seoul, South Korea. For South Koreans living next door to a hostile, nuclear-armed state that regularly threatens their annihilation, their vote in Tuesday’s presidential election likely will be based in part on each candidate’s plan for how to handle North Korea. The North Korea conundrum is a perpetual foreign policy headache for South Korea’s leaders and one that is impacting the presidential race in several ways. (AP Photo/Lee Jin-man, File)
