North Korea’s third ballistic missile test and 12th missile test this year were carried out on Monday into Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), an area of water extending out to 200 nautical miles from the coast of the country.
Even after US show of military force (sending US Navy ships to the Korean peninsula), and much condemning by the international community, North Korea launched a short-range Scud, that flew about 450 kms before landing in the Sea of Japan.
Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe swiftly condemned the test and vowed concerted action along with its US ally.
Only China and US have mentioned that they are willing to enter into diplomatic talks with North Korea, only after it halts its missile and nuclear tests.
So another missile launched by the Kim Jong Un regime, and yet another discussion panel to be set up by the international community. I wonder how long will this keep on.
