North Korea is concerned about “extremely worrying” developments around the Korean Peninsula. Pyongyang is particularly concerned about the deployment of the US aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan in the region.

According to the North Korean government, the aircraft carrier, along with support ships, has created a “massive negative wave in the regional situation”. This was reported by the North Korean state news agency KCNA, citing a Defense Ministry spokesman.

Ballistic Missiles

In the past two weeks, the North Koreans have launched ten ballistic missiles, two of which landed in the waters where the aircraft carrier was docked the day before yesterday.

The launches are relatively consistent with the squadron’s movements around the Korean Peninsula and began late last month. The USS Ronald Reagan entered Korean territorial waters after North Korea fired a missile at Japan for the first time in five years.

‘Military Threats’

North Korea views its recent missile launches as self-defense against “military threats” from the United States. According to the regime, the launches had no impact on the security of neighboring countries and air traffic in the region, according to a report by state news agency KCNA.

“Our missile tests are routine and planned defensive actions to protect our security and regional peace against direct military threats from the United States,” the statement said. The regime says it also wants to respond to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
