Joe Biden criticizes Kim Jong Un; North Korea calls Biden 'an imbecile'

May 24, 2019 |

Joe Biden criticizes Kim Jong Un; North Korea calls Biden 'an imbecile'Kim said in April that his personal relationship with Trump was still good despite the collapse of their second summit in Vietnam in February. Biden’s campaign responded to North Korea by calling the relationship between Trump and Pyongyang “antithetical to who we are.” Biden, at a campaign launch in Philadelphia on Saturday, said: “Are we a nation that embraces dictators and tyrants like (Russian President Vladimir) Putin and Kim Jong Un?” Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), the state media, responded to Biden’s criticism in a commentary late on Tuesday. Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates, in a statement responding to the KCNA remarks, repeated that Kim is a dictator and a tyrant.

North Korea Tests Two Short-Range Missiles

May 10, 2019 |

North Korea Tests Two Short-Range MissilesNorth Korea launched "two short-range missiles" early Thursday morning, conducting its second weapons test in less than a week, South Korea's military said.The missiles, which had a range of approximately 420 kilometers and 270 kilometers, were fired at 4:29 p.m. and 4:49 p.m. local time, a statement from South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said."The US and South Korean intelligence authority is conducting analysis for additional information," the JCS said. "Our military has currently heightened its surveillance and alertness against possible additional launches, whilst maintaining combat readiness in close coordination with the US.The missiles had an altitude of about 50 kilometers and landed in the Sea of Japan, according to South Korea's Ministry of National Defense.The two recent launches were the first the North has ventured since November 2017. They have further complicated denuclearization talks between the U.S. and North Korea, after President Trump's February summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was cut short when negotiations reached a stalemate.The North's tests have also strained relations with South Korea, with whom they agreed a year ago at a highly anticipated summit to "make joint efforts to alleviate the acute military tension and practically eliminate the danger of war on the Korean Peninsula."North Korea's missile tests tapered off after the initial summit between Trump and Kim in June of last year, the first between a U.S. president and a North Korean leader, but have become more frequent as the U.S. has rejected the regime's demands, including the removal of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and a complete lifting of U.S. sanctions on the country.

North Korean leader Kim oversaw testing of multiple rocket launchers: KCNA

May 6, 2019 |

North Korean leader Kim oversaw testing of multiple rocket launchers: KCNAThe purpose of the drill was to test performance of “large-caliber long-range multiple rocket launchers and tactical guided weapons by defence units,” the Korean Central News Agency said, implying that the latest firing was not the long-range ballistic missiles that have been seen as a threat to the United States. Kim gave an order of firing and stressed the need to “increase the combat ability so as to defend the political sovereignty and economic self-sustenance” of North Korea in the face of threats and invasions, the report said. The statement came a day after the latest firing, which analysts interpreted as an attempt to exert pressure on Washington to give ground in negotiations to end the North’s nuclear programme after a summit in February ended in failure.
