If North Korea adheres to its confrontational stance toward the United States, it will only deepen the current crisis on the Korean Peninsula. It is indispensable for Japan, the United States and South Korea to closely cooperate to increase vigilance against the North.
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence has held talks with South Korean Acting President and Prime Minister Hwang Kyo Ahn in Seoul. They agreed on a policy of implementing “intensive punitive measures” if North Korea goes ahead with further military provocations.
It cannot be overlooked that the North launched a ballistic missile immediately before Pence’s visit to South Korea. Although the launch ended in failure when the missile exploded in midair, North Korea’s action was undeniably a violation of the U.N. Security Council resolutions adopted against that country.
The North is set to observe the 85th anniversary of its army on April 25. There are concerns that the country will conduct a nuclear test, which would be its sixth, and also launch an intercontinental ballistic missile.
