Tensions Between US, North Korea Slowly Easing

Kim Jong-un is briefed on plans to strike America in 2013

27 days since the last North Korean missile test, signs are that tensions are slowly, but steadily, easing.

North Korea likely fired the missiles in response to military exercises under way in South Korea involving tens of thousands of United States and South Korean troops, military experts said. According to Pacom, one of the three missiles blew up nearly immediately and the other two "failed in flight".

This led to a dramatic escalation in rhetoric from both Pyongyang and Washington, with US President Donald Trump threatening unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea if it continued making threats against the United States.

The officials added North American Aerospace Defence Command determined the missile launches did not pose a threat to Guam.

Mainland media reported that other investment also include hotel and property development joint ventures as well trading branches in Liaoning province which adjoins North Korea.

Within hours of the launch a new poster on a North Korean propaganda website showed a missile dealing "a retaliatory strike of justice" against the U.S. mainland, threatening to "wipe out the United States, the source of evil, without a trace".

The launches are believed to be North Korea's first test since the Fourth of July when it fired its first intercontinental ballistic test into the sea near Japan.

Kim also threatened to turn the USA into "a heap of ashes" in response to the Ulchi Freedom Guardian drills now being held in South Korea.

South Korea's Yonhap news agency said a ballistic missile may have been fired, without citing a source.

South Korea's presidential office says North Korea has likely tested its 300-millimeter artillery rocket system in the latest launch detected off its eastern coast.

According to media reports, the missile is created to fly farther and to be launched from protective canisters.

Tillerson said on Tuesday he wanted to "acknowledge" that Pyongyang had not conducted missile tests since the adoption of the most recent UNSC resolution and commended Pyongyang for its restraint.

The US is now in the middle of its annual joint military exercise with South Korea, that the North has called an invasion rehearsal.

In response to the US-South Korea military exercises, Pyongyang vowed that it would serve "merciless" retribution to the two allied countries.
