North Korea informed Japan about its plan to launch a satellite-carrying rocket during a nine-day window. The launch is scheduled to start on November 30 at 12:01 am and end at 11:59 pm. Japan’s Prime Minister wants to persuade North Korea to cancel the launch, as it would violate U.N. Security Council resolutions. Japan, the U.S., and South Korea will continue to work together to demand that North Korea cancels the launch. The Japan Coast Guard identified three maritime danger zones where rocket debris might fall. The Japanese Foreign Ministry held talks with U.S. and South Korean representatives, and Japan’s government has been preparing for a possible satellite launch. Since North Korea’s announcement in May, Japan has been ready to destroy any projectile that enters its territory. North Korea had previously failed to launch a military reconnaissance satellite, and there are concerns about a potential launch by the end of November.
