Malaysia joins chorus of protests against North Korean missile launches

Listen to the cryptic intercepted messages below. North Korea's coal exports account for one-third of its total exports by value. The fears stem from recently intercepted radio messages sent out in the dead of night by the Pyongyang propaganda station. Without the cipher books, the messages were meaningless. Referring to the assassination of Kim Jong Nam, Jasser compared North Korea's willingness to use weapons of mass destruction in another country to Syrian dictator Bashar Al-Assad's use of such weapons against his own people.

North Korea's four missiles flew about 620 miles, with three of them landing in waters that Japan claims as its exclusive economic zone.

"If they were testing a new missile, they wouldn't fire four of them at once", Kim said.

Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe condemned the rogue state for its "extremely unsafe action" and warned: "This clearly shows North Korea has entered a new stage of threat".

Following the launch, South Korea's national security council was set to meet.

Seoul and Washington launched the annual Foal Eagle exercises last week, with the North's military warning a day later of "merciless nuclear counter-action" against enemy forces. The two condemned the launches and agreed to boost cooperation to get the North to face more effective sanctions and pressure, according to South Korea's presidential office. Advocates of the United States programme claimed success, believing that they had delayed for years North Korea's ability to mount a nuclear weapon on an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) and threaten a U.S. city.

The United States strongly condemned North Korea's missile launches Sunday, reaffirming its commitment to defend itself and South Korea by using the "full range of capabilities at our disposal".

The head of the United Nation's International Atomic Energy Agency, Yukiya Amano, called on North Korea to fully comply with its obligations under Security Council resolutions.

The kind of missile is uncertain but the North is prohibited from nuclear tests or any missile by the UN.

In addition to the Carl Vinson, the F-35 stealth fighter jets, the most advanced military aircraft, which were deployed for USA forces stationed in Japan in January, are scheduled to take part in the drills for the first time. CNN reports that Trump cited North Korea as America's "greatest immediate threat". Kim Jong Un is also said to have ordered the executions of some of Kim Won Hong's underlings.

North Korea fired ballistic missiles again.

"China should solve that problem". In that case, detecting signs of missile attacks becomes more hard because the North will have a shorter time to prepare a launch.
