Japan PM Kishida claims that a North Korean missile was destroyed in exclusive economic waters
Fumio Kirishida described the launch as “absolutely unacceptable” and stated that there were no reports of damage to aircraft or ships.
According to Fumio Kirisha, Japan’s Prime Minister, the suspected intercontinental ballistic missile North Korea launched on Friday is believed have been lost in Japan’s exclusive economic waters.
Kishida described the launch as “absolutely unacceptable”, stating that there were no reports of damage to aircraft or ships.
Kishida stated that the ballistic missile North Korea launched is believed to have hit our EEZ (exclusive economically zone) west Hokkaido. He was speaking at a regional summit in Bangkok.
The EEZ extends 200 nautical miles beyond Japan’s coast, and is well beyond Japan’s territorial waters. The missile was earlier described by the Japanese defense ministry as “ICBM-class”.
This was North Korea’s second rocket launch in as many days. The isolated state is continuing a record-breaking blitz, which has sent fears about a nuclear attack skyrocketing.
“We made a strong protest to North Korea. They are repeating their provocative acts with an unprecedented frequency. “This is completely unacceptable,” Kishida stated.
He said that Japan, the US, and South Korea should work closely together to achieve complete denuclearization of North Korea.
After their first face to face talks, Kishida stated that he had raised “serious concerns'” with Chinese President Xi Jinping about security issues, including North Korea.
After Thursday’s talks in Bangkok with Xi, Kishida stated that he had expressed his expectation that China would play a role in North Korea.
