The Low Down North Korea Launches Ballistic Missile on the Eve of Trump-Xi Summit Published 2 years ago on Apr 5, 2017 By Lyn Kelly The night before the meeting of U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping in Florida, North Korea has again launched a missile towards the Sea of Japan. The missile was said to have been fired at a high angle reaching heights of about 117 miles and a distance of 40 miles before it hit the waters. CNN.com The missile was named “Pukguksong-2”. It is classified as a KN-15 mid-range missile that has nuclear capabilities. Unlike its predecessor the “Pukguksong” which was launched at a submarine, the “Pukguksong-2” was launched at a coastal area near Sinpo. This means that the missile could be fired from any land-based vehicle at any point in the country. The launching of object with the use of ballistic missile technology is highly forbidden by the UN council as per UN Security Council resolution. By conducting this missile testing, North Korea is directly violating the laws sanctioned by the United Nations. CNN The latest missile testing conducted by North Korea has been strongly protested by Japan and South Korea. Yoshihide Suga, Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary said in a statement that the said launch was “extremely problematic”. While in South Korea, Seoul conducted a National Security Council meeting and came out with a resolution that Seoul would respond aggressively in case of any further provocation from North Korea. CNN On the other end of the globe, U.S. President Donald Trump told the Financial Times that he will pressure China into curbing North Korea’s nuclear program. Trump, in an interview, said “China has great influence over North Korea” he added that either China will help us or not. By using the U.S.’s trade relations with China, Trump is hoping to persuade China into pressuring North Korea to stop its illegal missile tests. Trump added “If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will” On the other hand, Beijing is asking that both parties sit in a dialogue to discuss issues regarding North Korea’s nuclear program. A positive outcome regarding this meeting remains to be seen as both the US and Chinese presidents are dishing out different proposals. UP NEXT Beck Slams Trump...
