North Korea launches missiles ahead of talks with the US

North Korea has launched two missiles in the sea ahead of their planned meeting with the United States of America.

The missiles have been termed as an attempt to pile pressure on the USA as they look forward to security guarantees in exchange for stopping further nuclear use.

South Korea on the other side has stepped its efforts to watch any additional missiles fired by their neighbors.

North Korea missiles are said to have traveled a total of 330 kilometers and they are more advanced than the previous ones.

This is the eighth missile launched by the North since May and the first one since August 2019.

Making an address, Choe Son the Foreign Minister said the country is ready to have a meeting with Trump under the condition that he accepts the new proposal.

She further warned of leaving the negotiation table if no deal is arrived at.

In response to Choe Son, President Donald Trump termed the sentiments as interesting saying he will see what happens.

Trump goes ahead to joke as at how the US has not carried out any of its missile testings for a while now.

Experts closely monitoring the missiles say the North’s launch was a signal of the country expanding its arsenal.

They further noted how they are creatively designing sophisticated weapons that cannot be traced by either US or South Korea.

It still remains to watch the events of the planned meeting and whether the two countries will reach an agreement.
