The failed launch was Pyongyang’s 10th military test this year, after seven missile tests and two that North Korea described as a “reconnaissance satellite”.
Seoul and Washington revealed last week that these tests are for a new ICBM system, or the so-called “monster missile,” that has not been tested before.
North Korea is subject to severe international sanctions because of its missile and nuclear programs, but the United States considered these tests a “dangerous escalation” and will not pass without sanctions.
At the beginning of last week, Washington and its partners failed to approve a text in UN Security Council Against North Korea because of the opposition of Russia and China.
Despite strict international sanctions imposed on it for its nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile tests, Pyongyang has so far rejected all offers of dialogue since the failure of the 2019 summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and then US President Donald Trump..
North Korea has ramped up its military modernization and warned in January that it might lift its self-imposed moratorium on tests of long-range missiles and nuclear weapons..
New South Korean President Yoon Seok-yeol, who was called by Joe Biden on Thursday to congratulate him, promised an indoctrination Kim Jong-un “How to behave“.
