"Japan is trying to disturb the reconciliation and easing of tensions on the Korean Peninsula," the commentary said.

Unlike North Korea who shot missiles over Japan unannounced and unprovoked making the missile defense necessary. Seriously have to wonder about their collective mental health. The robber criticizing the homeowner for installing a house alarm.

About the dumbest thing I've ever read.

A nation that launched missiles towards Japan is now lecturing Japan about anti missile shields?

Of course Japan is going to build missile defenses. And the Chinese and NK won't like it. Too bad.

OK, let's look at recent history - you know, since 1945. The North Koreans started the Korean war by invading the South. That resulted in at least 500,000 deaths in South Korea, about 75% of them civilian, hundreds of thousands dead in the North, about 35,000 US soldiers dead as well as hundreds of thousands of DPRK and Chinese military losses. Since the ceasefire the DPRK has engaged in a brutal repression of its own people, abducted the civilians of other countries, and most recently has engaged in launching of missiles over the airspace of its neighbours while also engaging in a whole range of bellicose rhetoric against a number of countries. Their Government, meanwhile, is restricted to the members of one family.

While since 1945 Japan has done what, exactly?

The world has changed, the Northeast Asia has changed, Japan is no longer the most powerful nation anymore and forever, NK is abandoning nuclear weapons, Northeast Asian want peace, not war. Japan has choice, get along with neighbours and historical trend, or against neighbours and historical trend.

"Japan had better cool down its head heated up with the wild ambition for a military giant and keep its step with the regional trend oriented to peace, though belatedly," it added.

NK needs to get more English teachers into the country!

The Summit between PM Abe and Kim-san will hopefully smooth things over, later this year. Remember NK Media were saying all kind of terrible things about Trump before Summit, “senile”, “rabid dog” etc. Now relationship is very positive and the new North Korea is returning bodies of US Marines.
