This missile launch is another blatant violation of United Nations Security Council Resolutions (UNSCR) by the DPRK. This reckless act, together with the evidence of ongoing nuclear activities, underscores the DPRK’s determination to advance and diversify its nuclear weapons and missile capabilities. They also pose a danger and unpredictable risk to international civil aviation and maritime navigation in the region. The G7 expresses its full solidarity with Japan and the Republic of Korea and urges the DPRK to cease its destabilizing actions. We urge the DPRK to resume meaningful dialogue toward denuclearization and accept the repeated offers of dialogue put forward by the United States, Japan and the Republic of Korea.

That is the assessment of several B.C.-based political scientists, who noted that the last few years have seen a high number of leadership turnover at all levels of government – local and international. Tupper referred to the recent election in Vancouver where nascent municipal party ABC swept through mayoral, council, school board and parks board votes. “In Vancouver, you have Sim as new mayor with no or minimal direct political experience,” Tupper said. It is a delicate web of interweaving political, economic, social and diplomatic factors that can easily be upset and create disaster. Huebner noted that, since the 2016 passage of the Brexit vote, four British prime ministers have resigned: David Cameron, Theresa May, Boris Johnson, Truss.16 days ago Business In Vancouver

North Korea accelerated its brazen and provocative weapons tests on Thursday, launching an intercontinental ballistic missile believed to be capable of reaching U.S. territories in the Pacific or even the mainland. Japan reported early Thursday that North Korea had fired a missile in its direction that landed in the sea, bringing the total at that time to at least four. “We call on North Korea to immediately cease its destabilizing action,” U.S. “North Korea’s multiple missile tests, combined with artillery firing or warplanes exercises, will likely become a new normal,” North Korea expert Ellen Kim, who suggested earlier this week that North Korea would likely conduct a ICBM test following its earlier rocket and missile tests, wrote in a post for the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Like many other analysts and U.S. officials, she suggested North Korea may launch a nuclear test next.28 days ago U.S. News & World Report
North and South Korea exchanged a barrage of indirect missile fire late Tuesday in one of the most significant acts of aggression by Pyongyang since the division of the peninsula in 1948. Kim Jong Un’s North Korean forces fired at least 17 ballistic missiles and 100 artillery shells into the waterways east and west of South Korea – a record number in itself. One crossed the sea border between the two nations, the first time a missile has landed that far south since before the Korean War. “This North Korean buildup is occurring in an international climate that is favorable for North Korea,” Sue Mi Terry with the Wilson Center wrote in an article published in Foreign Affairs . “So I would say, in general, our concern remains high – and consistently so – about the potential for a nuclear test.”29 days ago U.S. News & World Report
