North Korea’s Latest Missile Test Entered the Territorial Sea of JapanPrayaNet
Lombok, Lombok.press – North Korea reportedly re-test its ballistic missile on Tuesday (4/7).
The missile launch comes just days after South Korean President Moon Jae-In and US President Donald Trump met for the first time and discussed Pyongyang’s increasingly alarming threat.
“Unknown ballistic missiles were launched from a military site near Bangyon in the province of North Phyongan and crashed in the East Sea [Sea of Japan],” the South Korean military statement said.
According to a spokesman for Japan’s defense ministry, the missile is expected to fall around the country’s exclusive economic zone, a waters that stretch about 321 kilometers off Japan’s coastline.
North Korea’s missile launch today is the latest in a series of Kim Jong-un government provocations that have heightened tensions in the region.
Since the beginning of the year the North has continued to be in the spotlight due to missile test activities and its increasingly alarming nuclear development ambitions.
The most isolated country has also launched a number of missiles since President Moon Jae-In took office in May, ruling President Park Geun-hye impeached.
In fact, since serving in the Blue House, South Korea’s presidential office, Moon has a more refined approach to be able to counsel with North Korea.
Even so, Moon still insists that the implementation of sanctions on North Korea remains important as long as Pyongyang can not dampen its nuclear ambitions.
In his inaugural meeting with Moon at the weekend, Trump stated that the US has been exhausted in the face of North Korea’s weapons movement.
He even mentioned, the US with the international community needs to respond to this nuclear threat firmly and definitely.
“Together we face the threat of a reckless and brutal regime of North Korea, the nuclear and missile regimes require a firm response,” the 45-year-old US president said.
