Assessment: North Korea’s latest weapons test comes amid a two year pause in diplomatic negotiations with the United States over the nuclear disarmament of the Korean peninsula …
North Korea conducted its ninth weapons test of the year on Saturday, launching an unidentified projectile into the Sea of Japan.
The Japanese prime minister’s office said that the projectile was a “suspected ballistic missile.” North Korea has yet to comment on the launch, and typically stays silent on weapons tests until the next day.
“Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.” Rev. 16:12
The launch continues North Korea’s 2022 weapons testing spree less than a week after its last test on February 27. North Korea is on an “unprecedented pace” of weapons testing this year, according to The Japan Times. Pyongyang oversaw more weapons testing in January than in all of 2021.
The South Korean military said that the projectile was launched from the Sunan area of Pyongyang at just before 9 a.m. The projectile sailed into the waters of the Sea of Japan. The projectile landed outside of Japan’s exclusive economic zone, which extends out from Japan 200 nautical miles, according to the Times.
North Korea’s last weapons test was the launch of a reconnaissance satellite into space. Experts suspect that the launch was a veiled attempt at testing out long-range missile technology, which closely resembles the tech used in such satellite launches, according to Bloomberg.
