North Korea says it fired two missiles from railway car

The test comes after North Korea said it Leif-Eric Easley, associate professor of international studies at Ewha Womans University in Seoul, said after Friday’s test that Pyonyang “appears to be signaling it will not be ignored and will respond to pressure with pressure.””North Korea is trying to lay a trap for the Biden administration,” Easley said. “It has queued up missiles that it wants to test anyway and is responding to US pressure with additional provocations in an effort to extort concessions.”Pyongyang is barred from testing ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons under international law, but it has continued developing the weapons in violation of that.US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Friday showed no signs of compromise from Washington.After holding a phone call with South Korean Foreign Minister Chung Eui-yong, Blinken released a statement condemning the North Korean tests and reiterating Washington’s “iron-clad” commitment to the defense of South Korea.
