Media: Pyongyang in the coming days can launch a ballistic missile

21
North Korea is preparing to launch a long-range missile, it can be launched next week, reports RIA News Post Japanese agency Kyodo.




The UN Security Council banned Pyongyang with rocket launches; nevertheless, “in December 2015 of the year, experts from the American-Korean Institute at Johns Hopkins University reported that North Korea is completing the modernization of its main Sohe space center and can resume launches from the first quarter of 2016 onwards,” reminds the publication .

According to a source in the Japanese government, "according to data obtained by analyzing satellite images, North Korea may be preparing to launch a rocket from the Sohe landfill in the north-west of the country."

North Korea has been developing and launching its own missiles for several years. Pyongyang stated that it is implementing a space program, and rocket launches only pursue scientific objectives. However, the UN, given that missiles could become carriers of nuclear warheads held by the authorities, banned such tests and imposed tough sanctions against the country.

            a ballistic missile, when entering orbit, initially flies in a spiral, and there is no guarantee that at this stage, nothing will bend, and it will not bend in our direction

        It is very strange that a UN prohibits missile launches for a peaceful country that has never attacked anyone, and for which nuclear weapons are the only chance to maintain peace on its land, given the constant aggressive actions by the United States and its puppets .. This is interesting only because What is socialism?

        I completely agree. We will be the last in whom the Koreans wish to make fun of their rocket. A little scare the neighbors will never hurt, let the same Japanese realize that Russia is not the biggest problem for them.

    It is necessary to give Kasyanov to Ukraine, and revoke the citizenship of Russia. Let him keep his promises there. laughing

    Still, Koreans are stubborn and consistent. If the thermonuclear test is most likely a fake, then everyone will see the rocket.

    There is something to think about. And not only to the Japanese and the Republic of Korea, but also to the Chinese and us.

    What do you mean, let me ask ..?
    Given the quality of North Korean missiles, it can also star on us

    You are so familiar with Korean missiles that you so categorically express their quality ..? For example, I don’t, therefore, and try to say nothing about the quality of their missiles ..

    Well, if they fly in the direction opposite to the launch or at an angle. Then, following your logic, China must strain. But in general, do not be so lenient towards the DPRK.
    imposed severe sanctions against the country.

    Well, the DPRK does not scare sanctions; they are constantly under them. But they have to think about their safety.

    There is something to think about. And not only to the Japanese and the Republic of Korea, but also to the Chinese and us.

    Moreover, there have already been similar cases when, during the trials, the North Korean flew in our direction and only a small firing range allowed us to avoid casualties. EMNIP fell in the Nakhodka area. Our air defense systems did not have time to react ...

    And you ask about this our representative in the UN Security Council. Russia also voted for sanctions

      Well, these are the problems of our air defense missile defense, and not those who launch.

    Of course our problems. But here some argue that the North Korean will never fly in our direction

    The UN has long been a puppet of the United States, and the DPRK has put a bolt on the states. They are doing the right thing to develop and defend the interests of their country.
