North Korea’s missile launches, says Blinken, are profoundly destabilising

North Korea’s missile launches are deeply disruptive and dangerous, according to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who also stated that Pyongyang has not reacted to Washington’s diplomatic efforts.

The news: Following a string of North Korean missile launches, the Biden administration put its first penalties on North Korea’s nuclear development on Wednesday.

What they’re saying: In an interview with MSNBC, Blinken stated that the US has made it plain that it is not hostile to North Korea and is eager to engage in negotiations without preconditions.

  • “Unfortunately, not only has there been no reaction to those overtures,” Blinken added, “But the answer we’ve seen… has been renewed missile tests, which is deeply destabilising, dangerous, and in violation of a whole host of United Nations Security Council resolutions.”
  • “I believe some of this is North Korea’s attempt to attract attention,” he explained. “That’s what it’s done in the past. They’ll almost certainly continue to do so.”

The US and its partners are focused on ensuring that they are safeguarded and that the North’s missile action has consequences, according to Blinken.
