North Korea To Provoke Another Conflict – Fires Missiles after U.S Submarine Reaches South Korea

North Korea, under the leadership of its Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, has taken several measures to strengthen nuclear capacity and increase its nuclear and military arsenal. U.S. - North Korean relations have been on the decline, especially since 2019, after denuclearization talks broke down between the two countries in Stockholm.  


North Korea officially withdrew from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty on 10th January 2003, and since then, has been trying to make itself a strong nuclear, and military power. North Korea's increasing nuclear power, rapid testing, and the expansion of its nuclear arsenal have been a great cause of worry in the International community. Various U.S Presidents have attempted to initiate talks and reach agreements with North Korea, however all such efforts have been unsuccessful.  


North Korea-U.S. relations have been tense as the U.S. government has imposed several restrictions and embargoes on North Korea and has refused North Korean demands to revoke them unless it agrees to complete denuclearization.   


The G-7 countries(Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States), too, have often spoken against North Korea’s unlawful expansion of nuclear and ballistic missile capabilities and have come out strongly criticizing and condemning its military activities. The recent statement jointly issued by the G-7 Foreign Ministries “condemn(ed) in the strongest terms North Korea’s brazen launch of another Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) conducted on July 12, 2023”  



In their combined efforts to deter North Korea from increasing nuclear might, the U.S and South Korea are engaging in joint naval operations to prepare in case of a nuclear conflict Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK, known as North Korea). 


The U.S. nuclear-armed submarine USS Kentucky established a port in South Korea days after DPRK’s launching of its Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM). This is for the first time since the 1980s that a nuclear-powered U.S Submarine has made a port in South Korea.   


Just a week after USS Kentucky made a port in South Korea, another nuclear-powered submarine arrived at a naval port in South Korea. The arrival of U.S. submarines is a display of cooperation, joint efforts, and strength against North Korean threats.   


DPRK showing its resistance to the increased involvement of the American military in the Korean peninsula launched two short-range ballistic missiles after the arrival of the second U.S. submarine. The missiles landed in the sea off its east coast. The Japanese defense ministry said that the ballistic missiles by North Korea fell outside its exclusive economic zone.  


South Korea has regarded the launch of the missiles as a “grave provocation” by North Korea.  


These recent developments hint towards increasing tension in the Korean Peninsula and the possibility of another armed conflict that the world can potentially witness with the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war.
