(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – On Sunday, North Korea fired a short-range ballistic missile into the sea, while South Korea has claimed that Pyongyang has put the blame for the increased military tension on the Korean Peninsula in the United States.
The missile was launched from the east coast close to Pyongyang, the country’s capital and it flew for around 570 kilometers, or 354 miles, before landing in the sea. Reuters in their report noted that the Japanese Coast Guard reported that the missile had ended up falling into the sea within 20 minutes of its launch.
The South in their comments slammed the launch, pointing out that it was clearly violating U.N. Security Council resolutions that had previously placed a ban prohibiting the country from employing ballistic technologies.
In a statement, North Korea’s Defense Ministry after the launch slammed the United States for what they referred to as a “reckless military threat” and argued that the U.S. deploying military assets had destabilized the peninsula. However, in their statement, they made no reference to the ballistic missile.
Instead, they noted that the DPRK forces are going to be neutralizing the United States and their forces which are presently attempting to “ignite a nuclear war.” He added that they were going to ensure that the Korean peninsula would remain secure and peaceful.
Pyongyang has also slammed Seoul’s and Washington’s decision to add to their joint drills nuclear operation scenarios and noted that this was an open threat to North Korea over the possibility that nuclear weapons could be used against them.
