North Korea Fires Missile Over Japan, Prompting Threats of New Sanctions
North Korea fired a ballistic missile across northern Japan Friday, just days after the U.N. Security Council approved a new round of sanctions against the North Korean regime. The intermediate-range missile triggered air raid sirens across the island of Hokkaido, drawing condemnation from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who called it "totally unacceptable." In response to the test, South Korea conducted a missile drill of its own, releasing a video showing the launch of missiles capable of reaching any part of North Korea. This is South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
President Moon Jae-in: "North Korea should clearly realize that it is entering a path of downfall, due to a diplomatic and economic isolation as much as it increases frequency and strength of reckless provocation."
At the U.N., the Security Council is set to hold an emergency meeting on North Korea this afternoon. In a statement, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on China and Russia to take "direct action"—including new sanctions on oil exports and North Korean labor. Last month, President Trump threatened to unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea, and the U.S. has not ruled out a nuclear first strike.
