North Korea Launches Ballistic Missile

November 19, 2022

On Nov. 17, North Korea fired a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan.

The show of bravado was reportedly the beginning of what North Korea is warning could be a "'violent' counteraction against U.S. incursions."

It's being reported that the missile was fired from the Wonsan region of North Korea in the southeastern part of the country. The missile eventually landed in the waters between Japan and the Korean Peninsula.

North Korean Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui released a statement warning the United States, Japan, and South Korea that North Korea did not approve of the fact that the three nations have "resolved to forge still-closer trilateral links, in the security realm and beyond."

Choe called this a "serious warning" to America and its allies:

"The US bid to 'strengthen the offer of the extended deterrence' and the military activities of the allied forces around the Korean peninsula which become busy day by day are a stupid act of inviting greater instability to the United States and its Allies," Choe said.
