North Korea on Friday fired two “unidentified projectiles” into the sea, South Korea joint chiefs revealed. Today’s projectiles are the sixth, in less than a month. According to South Korea, the projectiles were fired from near Tongchon, a town in southwestern Kangwon Province, and fell into the sea of Japan.
North Korea has rejected any peace talks with South Korea. They seems to be angered by the leader of the South. The North Korean Alliance Committee has issued a statement that appears to be a rebuke to South Korean President Moon Jae-In. In a statement, North Korea said it had nothing to say.
As joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea began on Monday, North Korea for the fourth time in less than two weeks fired “unidentified projectiles,” in a clear protest and opposition to Washington-Seoul military co-operation. North Korea on Tuesday said that US and South Korean joint military maneuvers were not only a violation of peace efforts on the Korean peninsula but also showed a lack of “political will “of the two countries to improve relations.”
Kim Jong-un doubled down and conducted his second missile launch in less than a week. The first missile was detected at 5.06, followed by another at 5.27. The two were shot from a transporter-erector-launcher (TEL) vehicle at a point near Wonsan port, on the east coast of the peninsula, the same area where last week’s missiles were fired. The projectiles were similar to those of the last week, according to a General Staff statement, which added that “the successive launches by North Korea do not lead to reduce tensions and we urge you to stop them.”
The North Korean government said Friday the missiles launched yesterday are new tactical weapons designed to send a “solemn warning” to South Korea to stop importing armaments and conducting joint military exercises with the United States. The launch of two short-range missiles on Thursday was the first since North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump met last month in the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas.
The missiles that North Korea fired on Thursday are “a new type of guided tactical weapon,” the official KCNA news agency said on Friday. North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un “took it upon himself to organize and led” the trial of the “ultramodern weapon system,” which is “a solemn warning to the South Korean warlock military,” said KCNA. The announcement of the official news agency refers to the Thursday’s launch by North Korea of two short-range missiles that fell in the Sea of Japan.
Kim Jong-un inspected a new submarine in what looks like a new gesture to pressure the US within the framework of denuclearization talks. While negotiations remain stagnant, North Korea does not stop its military development. North Korean propaganda media yesterday claimed that Kim reviewed the submarine, with a deployment near the waters of the Sea of Japan (called the East Sea in the two Koreas).
Monday was another bad day for Chinese tech giant Huawei. The Washington Post dropped a major bombshell on the company regarding alleged (highly-illegal) dealings in North Korea, and Czech Radio added another involving activities in their own country. The news adds fresh and serious doubts about the company’s potential western footprint, and bolster’s Washington’s case that the giant is a threat to American national security and users’ privacy. President Trump met tech CEOs in the White House Monday, partially to discuss what to do about it.
