Recent North Korean Missile Launch is Condemned by White House

Late Wednesday night, the White House criticized North Korea’s latest missile launch and said it was a big security risk for the area.

“This launch, in addition to the launch of multiple other ballistic missiles this week, is a flagrant violation of multiple UN Security Council resolutions and needlessly raises tensions and risks destabilising the security situation in the region,” National Security Council spokesperson Adrienne Watson said in a statement.

“This action demonstrates that the DPRK continues to prioritise its unlawful weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programmes over the well-being of its people,” Watson added. “We urge all countries to condemn these violations and call on the DPRK to cease its destabilising actions and engage in serious dialogue.”

The White House also said that President Biden and his team are working with allies like Japan and South Korea to figure out what’s going on.

Late Thursday night, local time, North Korea fired an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) into the sea. This was at least the fourth missile fired that day. North Korea’s missile tests are getting more and more dangerous. On Wednesday, it fired more than 20 missiles after firing a few in October.

The most recent launches seemed to be a response to an agreement between the U.S. and South Korea to expand joint military exercises that involve thousands of service members from both countries.

Wednesday, the White House also criticized North Korea for what it said was sending weapons to Russia to help Russia fight in Ukraine.
