The US reported the seizure of the ship on the day when, according to information from the South Korean army, North Korea launched two short-range missiles that flew 270 and 420 kilometers, then fell into the Japanese Sea.

The launch took place just hours after the arrival of US Special Envoy for North Korea Stephen Biegun to Seoul. Biegun met with South Korean counterpart Lee Do-hoone yesterday, and today he has a meeting with South Korean foreign ministers and mergers. This is Biegun’s first visit to South Korea after the February top US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un in Vietnam, which ended without agreement.

Meanwhile, American television ABC News reveals that the North Korean leader, as part of an agreement on nuclear disarmament and normalization of relations, called for a visit to “famous American basketball players” in Pyongyang. The information was confirmed for television by US government officials.
