North Korea conducted a Sunday test of a ballistic missile, the first since joining Donald trump in the position of President of the United States. The White house is considering in this regard, the variants of the response, which should demonstrate the determination of Washington, without causing tension.
About it writes on Sunday, February 12, the news Agency Reuters.
According to South Korean intelligence, the medium-range missile of class «Musudan» landed in the sea of Japan. This model was first demonstrated on 10 October 2010 military parade in honor of the 65th anniversary of the workers ‘ party of Korea. However, some experts believe that it was a model rocket.
The White house sources report that this launch was not a surprise: the administration trump expected from the DPRK of such provocations. As a possible variant of the answer deals with the increasing pressure on China, which has at its disposal a leverage on North Korea, but is not doing enough in this direction.
Last week, after a meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and a telephone conversation with Chinese leader XI Jinping and trump said that the United States are entirely on Japan, without going into explanations. Abe, for his part, called North Korea’s behavior «absolutely intolerable» and «contrary to UN security Council resolutions». Beijing has not yet commented on the latest developments.
