North Korea fires projectiles after offering talks with US

North Korea fires projectiles after offering talks with US”

The missile tests also come at a time of increasing friction between Japan and South Korea, two key United States allies in the region.

The missiles were fired into open water but they first flew over land across the Korean Peninsula from South Pyongyang province, according to South Korea's joint chiefs of staff, which is studying what kind of projectiles they were along with American analysts. U.S. President Donald Trump has said he has "no problem" with North Korea's past short-range launches.

The test came just hours after the North offered to resume nuclear talks with the United States.

Background: North Korea has been conducting routine missile tests in recent months in an attempt to shore up its defenses and strengthen its negotiating position with the United States.

North Korea's official media has repeatedly denounced US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and urged Trump to replace him with a "more mature" interlocutor. One is reported to have flown roughly 330 kilometers - the other, some distance less than that - and they are reported to have reached an altitude of 50 to 60 kilometers. "We are continuing to keep track of the scenario and consulting closely with our allies in the location".

The two leaders agreed at a short meeting in June at the Demilitarized Zone separating North and South Korea to restart staff level talks, but they have yet to start.

Questioned about the proposal for reduce-level talks in September, Trump instructed reporters: "I have a very very good romance with Chairman Kim".

In a statement carried by the North's official Korean Central News Agency, Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui said Pyongyang was willing to have "comprehensive discussions" with the United States in late September at a time and place to be agreed to between both sides. Such a test, which could involve the transporter erector (TEL) launcher seen in accompanying photos, would improve the survivability of the weapon and confound USA and South Korean military planners.

The U.S. special representative for North Korea, Stephen Biegun, spoke by telephone with his South Korean equivalent, Lee Do-hoon, on Tuesday morning, South Korea's foreign ministry said. I constantly say having conferences is a great issue.

Trump returned from Singapore to Washington tweeting, "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".

"I believe that the U.S. side will come out with a proposal geared to the interests of the DPRK and the U.S. and based on the calculation method acceptable to us", Choe said, referring to North Korea by an acronym for the country's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Although Trump has given a pass to the North on its shorter-range weapons tests despite a United Nations ban, Tokyo has been outspoken in its condemnation of the launches.
