During a phone call, Foreign Minister Park Jin of South Korea, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi discussed imposing individual sanctions on North Korea. This comes after North Korea’s failed attempt to launch a spy satellite. The three envoys stated that the call is a follow-up to the recent agreement at the Camp David summit on joint action against North Korea. The three countries also agreed to share real-time data on North Korea’s missile launches, conduct military drills, and establish a hotline for consultation on security threats. South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol instructed officials to share the findings with the US and Japan and prepare for further provocations from North Korea. North Korea’s state media blamed an error in the emergency blasting system for the failed rocket launch and stated that they would attempt another launch in October. The launch coincided with joint military drills between South Korea and the US, which North Korea sees as preparations for invasion. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un wants a reconnaissance satellite to monitor US forces in the region.
