North Korea fires 3 ballistic missiles

South Korean news agency “Yonhap” announced that the North Korean army launched “two ballistic missiles” into the East Sea on Wednesday. On Wednesday, South Korea’s joint chief of staff said North Korea had fired a third bullet from the Sunan region near the capital, Pyongyang. South Korean staff added that the second bullet fired by North Korea landed near the Japanese economic zone.

These new test missiles arrive in one moment in which US President Joe Biden concluded a trip to the region that included South Korea and Japan.

Since the beginning of the year, Pyongyang has stepped up its own test missiles, in spite of the international sanctions that have been imposed on it.

South Korea’s joint chief of staff said Wednesday that North Korea fired a third bullet from the Sunan region near the capital, Pyongyang.

These new test missiles arrive in one moment in which US President Joe Biden concluded a trip to the region that included South Korea and Japan.

Since the beginning of the year, Pyongyang has stepped up its own test missiles, in spite of the international sanctions that have been imposed on it.

During his visit in South Korea, Biden held talks with his new counterpart Yoon Seok-yeol, during which both stressed the need to step up military exercises to counter threats from the North.

The last day of his visit in North Korea, Biden told reporters that he has only one message for North Korean leader Kim Jong-un: “Hello. Point on the line.”

But the US president stressed that his country “is ready to face whatever North Korea does”.

The North Korean threat overshadowed Biden’s first trip in Asia since taking power in early 2021, especially since a senior US official warned that Pyongyang could take advantage of this visit to test a missile or even an atomic bomb.

The U.S. warning came after South Korean intelligence announced that the North had completed preparations for a new test nuclear.

To date, Pyongyang has conducted six test nuclear, the last of which dates back to five years ago.

In March, North Korea launched an ICBM.

And recently, satellite images showed that North Korea, after a long hiatus, has resumed building a nuclear reactor.
