North Korea ( and should you be worried ? )

North Korea and Kim Jong Un have been making headlines recently because of their nuclear missile programme. More interesting is that North Korea and the US have finally decided to talk and Kim is to meet Trump sometime near the end of May. (PS let me make it very clear that I am not into politics in anyway or form. I am writing this as I think Trump and Kim are very funny people.) North Korea’s nuclear programme was started by Kim Jong Un’s father, Kim Jong-il. After his death in 2011 his son Kim Jong Un took over and accelerated the North Korean nuclear programme, breaking international peacekeeping laws. This has lead to multiple sanctions on North Korea but china still supports North Korea economically. Tensions on North Korea and the US have been high. The US government wants North Korea to withdraw it’s missiles and then they will talk but North Korea wants to talk without preconditions. Finally they have agreed to talk and we all can hope that it all works out as planned. But the question still remains that should you be worried ? It might be a bit tricky to answer that question. North Korea is threatening the world with its missile programme which means that some countries are safe as they will be out of range. Their range is 1550 miles. That is enough to reach South Korea, and parts of Japan, Russia, and China. The Hwasong-10 is a North Korean designed intermediate-range ballistic missile with range capabilities of up to 1,550 miles (2,490 km), and could carry a nuclear warhead. However the countries with missile defence systems should be safe. Missile defense systems are a type of missile defense intended to shield a country against incoming missiles, such as intercontinental ballistic missile(ICBMs) or other ballistic missiles. The United States, Russia, India, France, Israel and China have all developed missile defense systems. So Russia and China will be safe and sound in case of a North Korean attack upon them. So, the countries which will be in maximum danger are South Korea and Japan. But that’s not all. Recently reports have emerged that North Korea has Developed a nuclear submarine, and if it’s true, it will give them the ability to attack and place on earth and it will not be possible to stop them. Till then let us hope everything goes well and this meeting does not go south.
