"Normal military activity": North Korea tests cruise missiles

North Korea at the end of last week tested cruise missiles rather than ballistic missiles, which does not violate UN Security Council (SC) resolutions. Reported on Wednesday news Yonhap agency citing its own sources.


According to the newspaper, South Korean intelligence has established that Pyongyang at the end of last week, after a significant break, conducted missile test tests. Moreover, unlike all past tests, the DPRK did not comment on the launches in any way, which confused the United States and South Korea. It was later established that cruise missiles were tested, and this is not a violation of the UN Security Council resolution.

They launched cruise missiles, not ballistic missiles, and our intelligence identified them.

- the agency leads the words of the source.

In turn, American intelligence announced the testing of two short-range cruise missiles launched towards the Yellow Sea. It is noted that the last test in the DPRK was carried out in April last year, then new ballistic missiles were tested.

In Washington itself, the launches were reacted rather calmly, saying that this refers to the normal military activity of North Korea.

We are aware of the ongoing military activities on the part of the DPRK. We categorized these actions as normal military activity from the North (...) North Korea uses a familiar set of provocations when it wants to send a certain signal to the US administration

- said a representative of the US administration.

Meanwhile, the Biden administration confirmed that Pyongyang ignores all attempts to establish contact with Washington through various diplomatic lines. It is emphasized that there has been no active dialogue between the countries for over a year.

      Moscow's ally for a common enemy. The ideal of government for officials, where they are nobles. The first socialist monarchy. And in general, along with Iran, a spiritually close country. A citadel of traditional values ​​and spiritual bonds. Member of the Axis of Resistance to the Venezuela-Iran-Russia-DPRK hegemon. So let him arm himself.

        The first socialist monarchy.

        And what was the USSR under Stalin, a republic?
        And in general, along with Iran, a spiritually close country.

        Well, yes, considering that in the DPRK any religious activity is prohibited, AND IRI is precisely a theocratic dictatorship ..

          Stalin received power from his father? Did you give it to your son?
          Well, yes, given that in the DPRK any religious activity is prohibited, and Iran is precisely theocratic dictatorship

          Iran is for traditional values ​​and the DPRK is also for, they have their own religion, these are the Juche ideas. With strict rules.

            He seized this power, destroying his competitors ...
            Did you give it to your son?

            Did not have time. I suspect that those who were in the highest echelons of power and went through the Second World War did not allow this to be realized ...
            Iran for traditional values

            Which ones are they all different ... In the absolute monarchies of the BV and the DPRK, they also hang on lamp posts for unconventional same-sex relationships ...
            The DPRK is also in favor, they have their own religion, these are the Juche ideas

            Religion, unlike ideology, cannot be imposed on the entire population; both Jews and Christians ....
            With strict rules

            In the DPRK, everything is built according to strict rules ...

    My jaw dropped when I heard that the striped ones are not against the DPRK tests. Is someone dead in the forest? They come up with 3 aircraft carriers and threaten, and now they express their approval.
    Eunwoo needs to keep his nose in the wind, it is not known what these cowboys can do.

      We realized that threats do not work on inaudibility. And frightening postures put them in a stupid position when they are not supported by action.

    By the way, it’s interesting, but how, with whom and what to negotiate with the Yankees, if they have a new one, when the administration changes, they can don’t bury all the agreements, the CONTRACT concluded by the previous one !!!
    This is some absurdity!
    Here is the rocket Kim and does not negotiate with such a "windy, unreliable audience" !!! Moreover, the "newcomers" look really quite like that ... strange!

    It has been a long time since the DPRK did not remember something .. And I remember in all the news they poured boiling water over and shouted about the threat of the United States, etc.

    They ignore each other). Kim doesn’t return calls, but does showcase launches. At the same time, the United States declares that the launches are permissible, one should not worry.
