North Korea fired three short-range projectiles off its east coast, South Korea’s military said, two days after the North threatened to take “momentous” action to protest outside condemnation over its earlier live-fire exercises, ABC News reports.
Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the multiple kinds of projectiles fired from the eastern coastal town of Sondok flew as far as 200 kilometers (125 miles) at a maximum altitude of 50 kilometers (30 miles) before landing in the waters between the Korean Peninsula and Japan.
“North Korea’s latest action, on top of its repeated firings of ballistic missiles, is a serious threat to the peace and safety of Japan and … a grave problem for the entire international society,” Suga said.
In the past 10 days, North Korea has said leader Kim Jong Un supervised two rounds of live-fire artillery exercises in its first weapons tests since late November. Kim had entered the new year with a vow to bolster his nuclear deterrent and not to be bound by a major weapons test moratorium amid a deadlock in a U.S.-led diplomacy aimed at convincing Kim to abandon his nuclear program in return for economic and political benefits.
With all the mainstream media focusing on the dreaded “coronavirus” and the political train, issues like North Korea and rocket boy go unnoticed and people have forgotten how dangerous North Korea is.
All one has to do is go read peoples comments on social media and you will see that it is filled with infectious disease scholars, global economy scholars, military scholars and the list goes on. My point is, everyone has an opinion and for the most part, it is simply that, an opinion.
The blunt truth is that North Korea is still making ICBM’s, warheads and test firing as they please and yes the get slapped on the hands for it but they have not stopped and the people refuse to believe that rocket boy is a threat.
