South Korea vs North Korea: The tension between South Korea and North Korea is well known. North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is in the headlines every day due to the news of missile test. At the same time, South Korea and Japan are worried about these ‘actions’ of the North Korean dictator. Meanwhile, North Korea is currently making efforts to launch a ‘spy’ satellite, so that it can keep an eye on the entire area around it. South Korea is furious about this. In addition, South Korea has warned against launching spy satellites.
South Korea’s military warned North Korea against going ahead with plans to launch a spy satellite and said on Monday that Seoul could suspend an inter-Korean peace treaty and resume aerial surveillance of forward areas in response to the launch. can start North Korea failed in its first two attempts to launch a military spy satellite earlier this year and missed a third attempt in October.
An attempt to launch a spy satellite with Russian technology
South Korean officials said North Korea is likely delaying the launch of the satellite because it is receiving Russian technical support and could launch it in the coming days. Senior South Korean military officer Kang Hopul has appealed to North Korea to immediately stop its third launch attempt. “If North Korea launches a military spy satellite despite our warning, our military will take necessary measures to protect people’s lives and safety,” Kang said in a statement.
This was said by the Minister of Defense of South Korea.
South Korean Defense Minister Shin Won-seok said in an interview with public broadcaster KBS on Sunday that the launch is expected later this month and that South Korean and US officials are monitoring North Korean activities. The United Nations Security Council bans any satellite launch by North Korea as it considers it a test of its missile technology.
South Korea made the accusation
Kang said North Korea needed a spy satellite to improve surveillance of South Korea, but its launch was also aimed at expanding its long-range missile program. South Korea has accused North Korea of acquiring Russian technology to boost its nuclear and other military capabilities in exchange for supplying conventional weapons to help Russia fight.
