North Korea said Saturday that their ultimate goal is to reach an “equilibrium” of the military force with the United States, according to Reuters. “Our final goal is to establish the equilibrium of real force with the U.S. and make the U.S. rulers dare not talk about military option,” North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was quoted as saying by the state news agency, KCNA.
The UN Security Council condemned the latest missile launch over Japan as “highly provocative”, and imposed new sanctions over the country, banning its textile exports and restricting its imports of crude oil.
The United States, represented by Herbert McMaster and Nikki Haley, believe there is a military option of resolving the conflict, but it’s not the first choice of the Trump administration.
As it was reported earlier, DPRK launched another ballistic missile on September 15. The North Korean missile flew over the island of Hokkaido in the early hours of Friday.
The DPRK has been complicating international relations, threatening the global security by numerous nuclear and missile tests. Recently, Pyongyang claimed to have successfully tested a hydrogen bomb, the test being ordered personally by the country’s leader Kim Jong-un. The government said there was no radiation leaks on any other negative consequences to the environment.
