Korea to Develop Stronger Nuclear Missile, Japan to Impose More Sanctions

Korea to Develop Stronger Nuclear Missile, Japan to Impose More Sanctions

North Korea fired several rockets into the sea yesterday in the continuation of its rapid nuclear and missile expansion, prompting South Korea to press ahead with military drills involving U.S. troops that have angered Pyongyang.

New reports suggest North Korea is developing a stronger type of nuclear missile.

In this episode of Jahan Nama, host Massoud Malik discusses the topic with Basir Ahmad Yusufi, an global relations affairs analyst.

The latest launch comes during an annual joint military exercise between the United States and South Korea that the North condemns as an invasion rehearsal.

The launches are believed to be North Korea's first test since the Fourth of July when it fired its first intercontinental ballistic test into the sea near Japan. Guam, a tiny United States territory located in Micronesia in the western Pacific, is home to two major American military bases housing over 6,000 personnel.

The North earlier threatened to shoot four intermediate-range ballistic missiles toward the US territory of Guam.

North Korean state-run media said the country's military could strike the U.S. at any time and that neither Guam, Hawaii nor the USA mainland could avoid the "merciless strike".

The projectiles were launched from a site near Gitdaeryong in Gangwon Province at around 6.49 a.m, according to the South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), Xinhua reported.

Also on Tuesday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson praised Pyongyang for demonstrating "some level of restraint", noting that there had been "no missile launches or provocative acts on the part of North Korea", since the United Nations Security Council voted August 5 to impose a $1 billion sanctions package against the country.

China is North Korea's only ally and is the recipient of 90 per cent of its exports and has come under pressure to take a harder line against Kim Jong-un.

Ausmus said he was most surprised by the light suspension given to Sanchez, who threw two punches at players pinned on the ground. Fulmer looked like he might be hurt after throwing that pitch, and he was checked by the trainer before staying in the game.

Tillerson called North Korea's "restraint" pleasing and said it could open a pathway for dialogue in the near future.

A televised announcement said a Hwasong-14 missile was tested on Tuesday and reached an altitude of 2,802km (1,731 miles) and flew 933km (580 miles), before landing in Japan's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

Throughout the year, North Korea has conducted a series of ballistic missile tests.

Earlier this month, President Donald Trump issued an extraordinary ultimatum to North Korea, warning Pyongyang not to make any more threats against the U.S. or it will "face fire and fury like the world has never seen".
