The South Korean military reported that North Korea has fired another missile today, Saturday, May 4, 2019, at 9:06 am, from a location near Wonsan, a coastal town east of Pyongyang. As authorities are analyzing the data on the missile launch, the South Korean military had no further information as of this writing.

United State talks with North Korea over denuclearization have stalled. Now, North Korea has fired a short-range missile off of it’s east coast today. Are the two incidents connected?

Along with today’s missile test, in mid-April, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un witnessed a separate missile test with what was described as a new kind of tactical guided weapon. The US is taking this as a sign that the North Korean leader is trying to gain leverage in the tension derived from denuclearization.

Prior to these 2 missile launches, Kim Jong-un met with US President Donald Trump to discuss the possibility of the US removing sanctions against North Korea in trade for a partial dismantlement of nuclear weapons in Kim’s country. Trump’s response was no – it was all or nothing; all sanctions would be lifted if all nuclear weapons were destroyed.

Kim Jong-un has vowed that his people will have to survive on water and air only before he will give in to international pressure regarding his nuclear weapons.
