North Korea fires third missile as angered Kim Jong-Un flexes military muscle
Military leaders believe the firing outburst has come as a result of planned military drills between Washington and Seoul, in the South. Kim said he sees it as a ‘planed invasion’.
Neither South Korea or Washington were mentioned by the news channel.
On July 25, North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles that Seoul officials said flew 370 miles into the sea.
Kim’s country then said the tests were designed to deliver a “solemn warning” to South Korea over its purchase of US-made fighter jets, which Pyongyang calls an invasion rehearsal.
The North also tested short-range missiles on May 4 and 9.
Talks between the US and North Korea over its nuclear programme have stalled. The United Kingdom, France and Germany have urged Kim to give up his weaponry.
However, North Korea said UN resolutions were “grave provocation” against its government.
World leaders were hopeful of resolution after the Trump-Kim summit on June 30 – however, the relationship appears to be souring.
President Donald Trump said on Thursday he wasn’t worried about the weapons recently tested by North Korea, calling them “short-range missiles” that were “very standard.”
War games between the Seoul and Washington are due to take place in August. Pyongyang said if they go ahead this will violate the agreements between Washington and Pyongyang.
