North Korea launched two new missiles this Friday in what constitutes the sixth such test since June 25, when Pyongyang began intensifying its military displacements to the United States and its president Donald Trump.
The rockets were fired shortly after 8.00 local time, and traveled about 230 kilometers before falling to the sea, according to the General Staff of the South Korean army.
The military test coincided with a harsh message from the North Korean leadership that flatly rejected any resumption of the dialogue with its southern neighbors following the appeal in this regard of South Korean President Moon Jae-In, who was forced to convene an emergency meeting of his principal Advisors after this last gesture of Pyongyang.
"We have nothing more to talk with the South Korean authorities nor do we intend to sit down with them again," the so-called North Korean Reunification Committee said in a statement released by state media.
Moon Jae In took advantage of the anniversary of the end of the Japanese occupation of the Korean Peninsula after the conclusion of World War II to spread a conciliatory message towards Pyongyang, but after the new essay he warned that this type of gesticulation can lead to a new one " military tension escalation "in the area.
Last July Pyongyang announced that it had completed the manufacture of a new type of submarine, which according to experts such as Ankit Panda could be able to fire nuclear missiles , which would place the North Korean armed forces at a level that so far has reached very few countries of the world
That same month, the Foreign Ministry of the Asian country threatened to reactivate its nuclear tests before the decision of the US and South Korea to also restart their joint military maneuvers.
North Korea has not conducted any intercontinental missile launches or atomic tests since the end of 2017, when it opted for dialogue with Seoul and Washington, a decision that led to the surprising period of distention that the Peninsula attended during 2018.
However, the negotiation process between Kim Jong-un and Trump did not go beyond the realism and the media fury unleashed by their personal encounters in Singapore, Hanoi and Panmunjom, without these conversations leading to openwork agreements that would allow the relations between two nations and Washington's claim that Pyongyang dismantle its nuclear arsenal.
Despite Trump's attempt to minimize the resumption of missile tests, experts warn that the absolute blockade in which bilateral dialogue is plunged can lead Kim Jong-un to generate a nth regional crisis with a new explosion of a nuclear warhead following the traditional political style of the North Korean regime.
