Military maneuvers of the USA and South Korea VS ballistic missiles of the DPRK

Today began large-scale US-South Korean military maneuvers Foal Eagle and Key Resolve. In response, two short-range ballistic missiles were launched from the western coast of North Korea toward the Sea of ​​Japan.

The government of Japan, in turn, instructed the profile ministries to ensure the safety of Japanese aircraft and ships, having begun collecting information in cooperation with South Korea and the United States.

As previously reported in EastRussia, in mid-January, Pyongyang sent an official proposal to the US at least temporarily to stop joint military exercises with South Korea. In response, the DPRK was prepared to suspend the nuclear tests, said An My Myung-hun, deputy permanent representative of the DPRK to the United Nations.

According to the diplomat, Pyongyang did not receive a constructive reaction from the American authorities. “By refusing to accept our offer, the United States has once again demonstrated that it will continue to build up its military power in South Korea, while demanding that we abandon our own defense capabilities. This is completely unacceptable and cannot be justified by anything ", explained An Myung-hoon.

In 2014, the DPRK did not conduct nuclear tests, while carrying out ballistic missile launches in response to large-scale US-South Korean maneuvers.

The Secretary-General of the Cabinet of Ministers of Japan, Yoshihide Suga, considered Pyongyang's proposal unacceptable, "Because in itself it contradicts the UN Security Council resolution banning nuclear testing. Japan intends to closely cooperate with the US and the ROK on this issue ", - he declared.
