The Western press accused the DPRK of "failing" the APEC summit

In the Thai capital of Bangkok, several countries participating in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum had to organize an emergency meeting. The reason is the launch of another ballistic missile by North Korea, reports Reuters.


The Western press writes that Pyongyang allegedly disrupted the APEC summit by its actions. US Vice President Kamala Harris said North Korea's actions were a flagrant violation of UN Security Council resolutions. At the initiative of the United States, a meeting was convened with representatives from Australia, South Korea, Canada and New Zealand.

Interestingly, other countries in the Asia-Pacific region, for some reason, are not so nervous about North Korean missile launches. Maybe because in reality Pyongyang's actions are not such a threat to regional security, as the United States is trying to present it?

Russia has repeatedly stated that North Korea is being forced to conduct missile tests by the US itself and its regional satellites. Pyongyang has no other choice in the face of serious threats to its security. The presence of its own ballistic missiles is in this case one of the key guarantees for the security of the DPRK in the neighborhood with hostile countries. Recall that both Japan and South Korea are in fact states controlled by the United States with the presence of an occupying American contingent in them. The deployment of significant US military forces in the region aims to indicate readiness to suppress attempts of dissent by force at any moment.

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said that a North Korean missile fell in the country's exclusive economic zone. True, this is unlikely to lead to any consequences for Pyongyang. The leader of the DPRK, Kim Jong-un, has repeatedly demonstrated absolute independence from assessments and indignations from Western countries and their regional partners.

    Russia has repeatedly stated that North Korea is being forced to conduct missile tests by the US itself and its regional satellites.

    Moreover, Russia needs North Korea to help.

        My dad once arrived with black eyes and broken ribs. Somersaulted into a ravine on DT -75. The tractor was in disarray, then dad restored it for a whole month together with the uncle.

          While studying at school, I dreamed of working on the DT-75 (the first modification), and then on the T-150. Beautiful cars! good

            I somehow found a magazine from the seventies. So the Americans said that our tractors are better than they produce.

              Even without the Americans, I remember the quality of the tractors, that the neighbors (tractor drivers) in the winter at night near the houses did not turn off the tractor at all, so as not to start and warm up in the morning.

                And what is this for? I worked at a car repair shop and I remember how an American MAN drove with matyugas and warmed up with a gas burner.

    Rumor has it that the DPRK rocket reached an altitude of 6 km, so it may or may not fly to the United States?

      If the rocket reached such a height, then it would not return to Earth soon ... It would become an artificial satellite of the Earth.

      On November 18, at 10:15 a.m. Korea time (Moscow time +6), the Hwaseong-17 ICBM was launched from the Sunan airfield, not far from Pyongyang. According to the information of the South Korean and Japanese military, it flew about a thousand kilometers and fell in the exclusive economic zone of Japan at 11:23 (local time, Moscow time +6), that is, the rocket covered a thousand kilometers in more than an hour, although the system managed to reach a speed of 22 Mach. The top point of the flight parabola was at an altitude of 6100 kilometers. Such an unusual height explains why the North Korean ICBM flew for so long: it was launched along an inflated trajectory, the so-called candle. This is done when it is not possible or necessary to launch along a trajectory of 30–45 degrees, which provides the maximum flight range. It should be noted that this is the second launch of this rocket - the first was made on November 3, then the rocket was able to go through the stages of separation of the first and second stages and reached an altitude of 1920 kilometers, but then the engines could not work in the desired mode, and as a result, the system fell.

      The corresponding calculations were easy to make, and as a result, the South Korean military reported that in the event of a launch along a “normal trajectory”, the rocket would have flown 15 kilometers. This means that the Hwaseong-17 could hit anywhere in the continental United States. If the DPRK has multiple warhead technology, the probability of which is quite high, this means that North Korea, if desired, would be able to strike at the most important objects in the United States, for example, destroy Washington and New York at the same time. Although the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Korea did not unequivocally talk about the "complete success of the DPRK", it was recognized that North Korea "significantly advanced in terms of creating ICBMs" and successfully worked out the technology for re-entry of warheads into the atmosphere.

    First, let Kamala Harris tell how they bombed Yugoslavia and what UN sanctions were applied against the United States.

      As always, double standards.
      There is one thing I don't understand..
      At the initiative of the United States, a meeting was convened with representatives from Australia, South Korea, Canada and New Zealand.

      Did you forget to call Japan??? After all:
      Japan's Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said North Korea's missile fell in the country's exclusive economic zone.

      It seems like God himself ordered .. Or written off as a guaranteed corpse.
