North Korean Satellite Launch Threatens 2018 Peace Accord: South Korea's Response

South Korea issued a stern warning to North Korea against its planned spy satellite launch, suggesting a possible suspension of the 2018 peace deal. North Korea's attempts, reportedly aided by Russia, raise concerns, with South Korea contemplating actions to protect its people. The tension escalates as South Korea monitors the situation ahead of the expected launch.

The South Korean military cautioned North Korea regarding its proposed spy satellite launch, signaling potential consequences such as the suspension of the 2018 inter-Korean peace deal. Despite failed attempts, North Korea's persistence, supported by speculated Russian aid, threatens heightened tensions.

Senior South Korean military officer Kang Hopil urged North Korea to halt its satellite launch, warning of necessary measures to safeguard people's safety. Violations of the 2018 agreement by Pyongyang, including border intrusions and firing drills, prompt South Korea's consideration of defensive actions.

South Korea's military stressed the strain on its readiness due to North Korea's repeated breaches, indicating a possible suspension of clauses within the 2018 military agreement. This agreement was forged during a brief period of reconciliation between former leaders Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong Un.

Defence Minister Shin Wonsik highlighted US and Seoul authorities' vigilance over North Korea's actions, focusing on the satellite's potential role in bolstering Pyongyang's missile program. The UN Security Council's ban on such launches is due to concerns about disguised missile tests, further complicating the situation.

North Korea's nuclear ambitions post-failed talks with the US prompted increased tensions, leading Seoul to expand joint drills with the US. Despite North Korea's nuclear posturing, experts believe it's unlikely to initiate nuclear conflict but use it as leverage for concessions.

Both the US and South Korea have reiterated warnings about the consequences of North Korea's use of nuclear weapons, signaling a potential end to Kim's regime.
