“North Korean issue looks like a deadlock”

A North Korean train carrying a long-range missile has allegedly arrived at a launch base in the northwest of the country. The South Korean military has confirmed this development.

Some experts speculate that Pyongyang may be preparing to fire a new ballistic missile which theoretically could be capable of reaching the US.

International concern has been rising over the past week after North Korea undertook its second-ever nuclear test explosion, launched several short-range missiles, and warned of further action.

On the one side the international community must react to North Korea’s nuclear ambitions but on the other, history shows that pressure does not work in regard to North Korea, says expert Aleksandr Vorontsov.
