If it turns out that the claims of South Korea are true (most experts agree that it is likely to be short-range missiles), this will be the first launch of missiles after November 2017, when Pyongyang tested intercontinental ballistic missiles. In the event of a launch of short-range missiles, North Korea does not violate the promise made by the US, that it will no longer test mid-range nuclear missiles.
It is also the first “test” of the meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump in February in Vietnam, which ended without agreement.
At the same time, it seems that Pyongyang is becoming increasingly impatient with regard to Washington’s persistence in economic sanctions until North Korea takes serious measures to dismantle its nuclear weapons. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders has already said that they are aware of the behavior of Pyongyang and that they will continue to monitor the situation. “We are familiar with North Korea’s actions, and we will continue to monitor it as necessary,” said White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders.
The conduct of North Korea is also being monitored in Seoul. The Japanese Defense Ministry also reported that the missiles had fallen far from the Japanese coast and that the country was not under threat.
