North Korea fires three missiles the day after Joe Biden’s visit to Asia

North Korea fired a “suspected intercontinental ballistic missile”, Wednesday, May 25, as part of a series of three missile tests, the South Korean military said. Seoul said at least three missiles were fired from Sunan, a suburb of Pyongyang, toward the Sea of ​​Japan at 6 a.m., 6:37 a.m. and 6:42 a.m.

Pyongyang is seeking to equip itself with the technology that would allow it to maneuver its missiles after launch, making it more difficult for missile defense systems to intercept them. South Korean and American intelligence services also suspect Kim Jong-un’s regime of preparing a nuclear test, which would also be its first in five years.

These shots come a few hours after the departure from the region of United States President Joe Biden, who came to Asia in particular to reaffirm his support for Seoul and Tokyo in the face of the nuclear threat from North Korea. The US government had said in recent days that it expected a “provocation” from the North Korean regime.
