North Korea Will Soon Launch Multiple Satellites To Monitor Military Movements By U.S. And It Allies

Japan’s Deputy Defence Minister Makoto Oniki warned the country about, how in all probability North Korea tested a new type of Intercontinental ballistic missile, castigating the nuclear-armed country for its actions while international attention is focused on Russia’s war with Ukraine.

It is the first reckoned launch of an ICBM since November 2017 during a period of intensified tensions between North Korea’s Kim Jong Un and former U.S. President Donald Trump.

While North Korea has carried out gust of ballistic missile tests in recent months, the launch of an ICBM represents a vital upsurge.

Japan’s Oniki told reporters that the missile launch may be a new model because it flew much further than the previous ICBM test-fire.

The long-range missile, which reached a maximum altitude of over 6,000 Km’s (3,728 miles), flew for abruptly 71 minutes and travelled about 1,100 Km’s, Oniki said.

It landed roughly 150 Km’s west of Japan’s Oshima Peninsula within Japan’s exclusive economic zone at about 15:44 local time (2:44 a.m. ET).

Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno mentioned that it is utterly unacceptable that while the world is being responsive towards Russia’s aggression against Ukraine, North Korea would unilaterally shoot up its incitement against the international community by doing this launch.

Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, who is in Brussels, Belgium, for the G-7 summit, said that he would look for international cooperation in response to North Korea’s missile launch. As also mentioned by the reporters, Kishida described the action as an unacceptable act of violence.

South Korea’s military earlier said that North Korea launched an unidentified projectile suspected to be a long-range ballistic missile, without describing whether it was an ICBM.

Earlier, North Korea fired a rocket that exploded in mid-air over the capital of Pyongyang shortly after lift-off.  It came amongst reports the country was seeking to test-fire its largest missile yet.

South Korea, the U.S. and Japan have all convicted North Korea’s ballistic missile tests, which have taken place with record frequency in recent months.

According to Reuters, the launch would be at least the 13th missile test-fired by Pyongyang since the start of the year.

The North’s return to prime weapons tests also poses a new national security headache for US President Joe Biden as he responds to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and presents a challenge to South Korea’s incoming conservative administration.

Japanese authorities said that the launch seemed to be a new type of ICBM.
