The technological advancement of North Korea has increased the boundaries of neighboring countries such as Japan and South America, but even more so with North America, with North Korea’s decision to launch two missiles from the port city of Wonsan, North Korea.

The Musudan intermediate-range missiles has terrified and provoked the United States to take action. South Korea’s Unification Ministry spokesman, Jeong Joon Hee, declared that any firing of ballistic missile technology indicates threat and violation of the treaty. The two missiles that were launched were considered a failure; however, they may serve as a possible threat to the world.

The U.S. State Department criticized the missile test of North Korea and began to carefully monitor the missiles over the Sea of Japan (or the East Sea), as well as closely tracking the situation with nearby allies and partners.

The United States cautioned North Korea that the ballistic missile tests will prompt the United Nations sanctions to push forward and proceed with defenses if those tests were not ceased. John Kirby, of the U.S. Statement Department, indicated that the U.S. will assemble to defend themselves and their allies, South Korea and Japan, from any potential or future attacks and threats.
