If North Korea launches missile, America will ‘reply’: Joe Biden

Washington: The US “responded” to North Korea if it continues to escalate tensions by testing ballistic missiles, President Joe Biden said on Thursday.
According to the news agency DPA, “We are consulting with our partners and partners, and if they want to move forward there will be responses. We will respond accordingly.”
North Korea test-fired its first ballistic missiles in the early hours of Thursday since Biden took office in Washington to bolster the new administration.
The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) of the South Korean Army said the two Korean-range missiles were fired from the North Korean city of Hamju and traveled for about 450 kilometers.
Biden said he was “ready for any kind of diplomacy,” but that the dialogue on “the end result of autocracy” should be predetermined.
When asked by a reporter whether North Korea was his “top foreign policy issue,” Biden replied: “Yes.”
The test-fire had prompted early condemnation from Japan, one of Washington’s closest allies in the region.
Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihida Suga said that Tokyo is “conducting a serious protest” after Pyongyang fired missiles into the Sea of ​​Japan – known as the East Sea in South Korea – and that the Tokyo Act “Strict condemnation”.
“The launch threatens the peace and stability of our country and region and was a clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions,” Suga told reporters.
Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called for a fresh dialogue on the peace process on the Korean peninsula.
During his visit to Seoul, Lavrov called for talks to find solutions to problems on the divided peninsula. Russia is committed to peace and stability, he said.
This marks the second time Pyongyang has launched missiles in the past week.
North Korea fired two cruise missiles from its west coast on Sunday, Yonhap News reported on Wednesday.
The test was carried out on Sunday in view of joint military exercises by the armed forces of South Korea and the US. The nine-day command exercise, which did not include field training, ended on Thursday of last week.
Kim Yo Jong, the influential sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, had condemned the military exercise and accused the new US administration of causing trouble as a first step.
North Korea has banned the testing of ballistic missiles by UN resolutions, and has been slapped with strict international sanctions to allow it to continue to develop rocket rockets that could be equipped with nuclear warheads. .
