The North's leader sent the message to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to mark the 70th anniversary of the creation of the controlling Ba'ath party, according to Rodong Sinmun, North Korea's main newspaper.

June 22, 2016: North Korea conducts two tests of an intermediate range Musudan missile after four failed launches of the same kind. I think that in North Korea, it's an enormous unknown'.

North Korea considers Syria an ally.

TRT World's Joseph Kim reports.

Ahead of a key visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping, US President Donald Trump had said the United States was prepared to go it alone in bringing Pyongyang to heel if China did not step in. These include economic and military measures but lean more toward sanctions and increased pressure on Beijing to rein in its reclusive neighbour.

The developments emerged amid the fallout over the USA missile launch against Syria, a demonstration both of US military force and of Trump's willingness to act militarily. Or was the launch just part of its broader missile development programs, with outsiders reading too much from a routine weapons test? On Wednesday, North Korea reportedly launched a ballistic missile from Sinpho, South Hamgyong province, in the direction of the Sea of Japan.

"I've joked before that they don't mind being hated but they definitely hate to be ignored", Cossa said.

The Air Force general said the US also should pursue to advance its missile capabilities and forces to prevent threats and aggression. It would be the first USA deployment of nuclear weapons overseas since the end of the Coal War. When conducting nuclear and missiles tests in recent years, it has cited what it calls increasing USA military threats. It was launched Wednesday at 6:42 a.m. Seoul time from a site in the vicinity of Sinpo, South Hamgyong province, a South Korean Defense Ministry official said.

The North has fired missiles when South Korea hosted the 2010 Group of 20 summit and other events, and while top US officials were traveling in the region.

The sanctions, which were scheduled to expire in mid-April, were imposed on North Korea in response to a lack of progress on the abductions of Japanese citizens by Pyongyang in the 1970s and 1980s, and its repeated missile provocations, government spokesperson Yoshihide Suga said at a press conference.

"If this is the KN-15, North Korea is refining their solid fuel capabilities", says David Schmerler, a research associate at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies. Please support our efforts.
