Kamala Harris surely had a more cordial farewell. North Korea fired an unidentified ballistic missile at sea, the South Korean army announced on Thursday (September 29th), a few hours after the departure of the American vice-president from South Korea. Kamala Harris visited the heavily fortified South Korean border there.
“North Korea fired an unidentified ballistic missile in the East Sea”, the South Korean chief of staff said in a statement. This maritime space, better known under the name of the Sea of Japan, corresponds to the waters located between the Japanese territory and the two Koreas. In the days leading up to Kamala Harris, Pyongyang had already fired two ballistic missiles. A record of weapons tests since the beginning of the year.
The United States’ commitment to the defense of South Korea is “steadfast”, said Kamala Harris on Thursday, assuring that Washington and Seoul were “aligned” in their response to the growing threat from the North’s weapons programs. Seoul also announced its participation in anti-submarine maneuvers with Japan and the United States, for the first time since 2017.
