Kim Jong-un, North Korea Launching

Kim Jong-un, North Korea – they have launched a missile from a test facility near the country’s west coast earlier today. The US has confirmed the launching. According to Reuters, the missile flew about 435 miles. It flew for approximately 30 minutes before it landed in the Sea of Japan. Unlike the missile they launched April 28, that failed shortly after launch, this one was successful in comparison to the launch, itself, and the amount of time it traveled.

Missile Was Launched Closer to Russia

According to US calculations the missile landed in water 60 miles south of Russia’s Vladivostok region. Vladivostok is home to the Russian Fleet. It is believed that the missile was sent so close to Russia, in an attempt by Kim Jong-un to send a message to Moscow and Beijing according to Carl Schuster, a Hawaii Pacific University professor and former director of operations at the US Pacific Command’s Joint Intelligence Center. Schuster also said that, “It tells Russia, ‘I can touch you too.'”

China remains one of North Korea’s only allies. The country is responsible for much of the heavily sanctioned nation’s economy. Schuster said, “It tells China, ‘I don’t care what you think, I’m independent.'” Following the launch China called for restraint by all parties.

Shinzo Abe, Japanese Prime Minister, condemned the launch. He said, “Despite strong warning from the international community, North Korea launched a ballistic missile again. This is totally unacceptable and we strongly protest it. North Korea’s missile launch is a serious threat to Japan and clearly violate against the UN resolution.”
