Before South Korea’s maneuvers: – North Korea fired two more cruise missiles

A day after South Korea and the United States began joint military exercises, North Korea fired two more cruise missiles. They were launched Wednesday morning in the western city of Onchon, according to South Korean military circles. There was no information about the range or altitude of the projectiles.

North Korea has recently stepped up its missile tests, violating UN resolutions. In preparation for a major maneuver from August 22 to September 1, South Korea and its ally the United States began exercises on Tuesday. South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol said on Wednesday he would be willing to help the neighboring country financially if North Korea stopped developing nuclear weapons and started denuclearization.

Talks between North and South Korea should be more than just a political show and should strive for lasting peace in the Korean peninsula and northeast Asia, Yoon said at a news conference marking his first 100 days as president.

Yoon has announced a tougher stance on communist leadership in Pyongyang. His statements apparently alluded to conversations between his predecessor Moon Jae-in, North Korean ruler Kim Jong-un and former US President Donald Trump. Despite several meetings, talks over the denuclearization of North Korea stalled in 2019.

North Korea has been testing missiles of various ranges for years. It is also developing long-range missiles that can hit targets in the United States. The communist government in Pyongyang accuses the United States of hostile policies.
