South Korea Businessmen Protest Over Kaesong

South Korea Businessmen Protest Over Kaesong

Tensions have soared between the United States and North Korea following a series of weapons tests by Pyongyang and a string of increasingly bellicose exchanges between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Pyongyang conducted its fifth nuclear test on the anniversary of the founding day of North Korea a year ago.

The two B-1B bombers were accompanied by two F-15K fighters from the South Korean military after leaving their base in Guam, the South's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a news release.

The air-to-ground missile maneuvers near the South Korean coast were intentionally scheduled for North Korea's communist party's anniversary.

North Korean hackers allegedly stole classified military documents from a South Korean Defense Ministry database in September 2016, according to Rhee Cheol-hee, a member of South Korea's National Assembly, CNN reported Wednesday. In August, Pyongyang threatened to shoot intermediate range missiles toward the vicinity of Guam, a target frequently subjected to sabre-rattling from the North.

"Through the practice this time, South Korean and USA air forces showed off the allies' resolve for strong retaliation against North Korea's nuclear and missile threats", it added.

In his speech before the United Nations General Assembly in September, Trump said the U.S. will "totally destroy" North Korea if it pushes ahead with its development of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles. Trump's Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney, later said that the president was telegraphing with the statement that "military options are on the table".

Mr Trump also mocked Kim Jong-un, calling the regime's leader "Rocket Man".

In a surprising sign of weakness, the commentary also says that if North Atlantic Treaty Organisation would join the United States in the Korean Peninsula it would "change the balance of forces" against it.

The defense minister announced, meanwhile, that a group of Australian military forces will soon arrive in South Korea as part of its Indo-Pacific defense activities.

In his latest tweet over the weekend, Trump reiterated that diplomatic efforts with North Korea have consistently failed, adding that "only one thing will work". China's influential Global Times tabloid expressed alarm at how far the rhetoric on both sides had gone and how it had increased the risk of a "fatal misjudgment".

To make the complex fully operational again, North Korea would also be hard pressed to replace the electricity supply that came from South Korea, according to the Kaesong business owners. North Korea needs time and proof to believe that abandoning its nuclear programme will contribute to its own political and economic advantage.

When it first opened in 2004, the Kaesong complex, located about 54 kilometers northwest of Seoul, was meant to promote inter-Korean development and give North Korean workers a taste of life in the south, including snack foods like the cakes known as Choco Pies and toiletries that were resold as luxury items in the North.

"In this region, we now have a joint task group which is traveling through. the region", she said.
