The head of US forces in South Korea, General Robert Abrams, said Thursday he does not expect North Korea to “go wild” during the upcoming celebrations for the 75th anniversary of the founding of the ruling party.

“There are people who are suggesting that there is going to be a presentation of a new weapon system” during the celebrations planned for next month, General Abrams said during an online conference organized by the Center. for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).

“Maybe, but we don’t see any sign at the moment that they are going to break loose,” he added, recalling that the regime in Pyongyang is facing the damage caused by Typhoon Maysak and the double pressure from international sanctions and the COVID-19 pandemic.

CSIS posted a satellite image of the North Korean shipyard at Sinpo South on its website, showing signs of activity, which the US think tank sees as possible preparations for launching a strategic ballistic missile from of an underwater platform.

A new North Korean ballistic test would testify to the lack of progress in negotiations on the denuclearization of North Korea, at a standstill despite three meetings by President Donald Trump, who is running for a second term in November, with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The first sitting US president to meet with a member of the Kim dynasty, which has ruled North Korea since its inception, Trump said Thursday that Kim Jong Un was in good health.

“Kim Jong Un is in good health. Never underestimate it! », He tweeted without further explanation.
