N. Korea Accuses US of Hostility After Change to S. Korean Missile Policy


What Happened:

  • On Monday, North Korea said the US's decision to end a decades-long policy that restricted South Korea's missile development is an act of hostility against the North and warned that it could lead to an "acute and instable (sic) situation on the Korean peninsula."

  • The decades-long policy, which restricted South Korea's missile development, was ended during the May 21st summit between US and South Korean leaders. Now South Korea, a US ally, will be able to develop missiles with unlimited ranges.

  • North Korea added that they will not return to negotiations and will continue to increase their nuclear arsenal as long as US hostility continues. The US has been trying to engage in negotiations with North Korea to cease its nuclear weapons development in exchange for an easing of sanctions.
