North Korea fires ballistic missile that lands in Japan’s exclusive economic zone

North Korea fires ballistic missile that lands in Japan’s exclusive economic zone

“Perhaps China will put a heavy move on North Korea and end this nonsense once and for all!”

North Korea fired a ballistic missile that flew into waters east of the Korean Peninsula, according to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.

“We confirm that North Korea has fired an unidentified ballistic missile off its eastern coast towards the East Sea from Banghyun area in Northern Pyong An Province at around 9:40 am (KST) Tuesday morning,” a South Korean military official told NBC. “The launch was immediately reported to the President Moon Jae In.”

Moon ordered a National Security Council meeting after the launch, South Korean state news agency Yonhap reported, citing the Blue House — the South Korean equivalent of the White House.

The meeting was to determine the country’s defense readiness against further incidents, Yonhap said.

Japan’s main government spokesperson said there were no reports of damage to planes and ships in the proximity.

“It flew for approximately 40 minutes and is believed to have landed within Japan’s economic exclusive zone,” he said in comments translated from Japanese by NBC News.

The launch occurred shortly after President Donald Trump wrapped up calls to the leaders of China and Japan to talk about the North Korean threat.

Trump spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe ahead of expected meetings with the leaders of Asia’s two biggest economies at a Group of 20 nations summit in Germany later this week.

“Both leaders reaffirmed their commitment to a denuclearized Korean Peninsula,” the White House said of Trump’s call with Xi from his resort property in Bridgewater, New Jersey, where he is spending a long weekend.

…Trump has become increasingly frustrated with China’s inability to rein in North Korea, and the reference to trade was an indication the one-time New York businessman may be ready to return to his tougher-talking ways on business with Beijing after holding back in hopes it would put more pressure on Pyongyang.

There are some clear signs of President Trump’s growing frustration with China’s lack of intervention with its northern neighbor.

President Trump had this response to the new North Korean missile launch.

Well, South Korea could always ask obama to intervene, I’m sure that would be a resounding success.
I can only imagine that Trump has special plans for Sout Korea after that cluster [email protected] meeting between SK President and obama .
It’s past time to break my charges against the treasonous fraud.

    Is it true what they say?

    Obama has the hots for the North Korean dictator?

No, China will not put anything on NK. The China card is a waste of time.

Yes, between Obama in the South and Dennis Rodman in the North, I’m sure the future of the peninsula is in the very best of hands.

    “Lock ’em up”
    The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. § 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that details the fine and/or imprisonment of unauthorized citizens who negotiate with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States.

And there is no way that China and Russia are providing the technology to build these missiles. Right. Those ICBMs in the picture are identical to the Russian ICBMs that Russia paraded through Red Square just days after NK unveiled them in their parade.

    our former Kommunist Fren-emys are playing a deep game trying to
    take US out.

    POTUS needs to be wary and put the hammer (and cycle) on them,
    no pun intended.

    maybe DJT can invite Obambus to visit the Norks and build a summer ‘vacation’ spot for himself and his ‘lovely’ wookie.

    I just learned today that it was Bill Clinton who gave the North Koreans 2 nuclear power plants – during his evil presidency – back in 1996.

As Japan’s horrid brutality to China and Korea in WWII passes from living memory hopefully they can begin working together fixing NK. It really would be in everyone’s interest.

    nobody forgot Imperial japan – they have apologized many times.

    see how the Norks treated OUR prisoners –
    wake up and smell the Chai.
    (Chai, a word for tea in numerous languages, derived from Mandarin Chinese chá (茶) Masala chai, a blend of black tea)
