Tensions are flaring on the Korean Peninsula following the latest missile test by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The launch occurred just hours before U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence arrived in Seoul. The test reportedly failed, but the Republic of Korea still described it as a threat to the world and warned of punitive action if Pyongyang attempts to test a long-range missile.
