Kim Yo Jong Vows To Launch Spy Satellite

Korea: Kim Jong Un’s sister again on June 4 vowed to push for a second attempt to launch a spy satellite as she lambasted a UN Security Council meeting over the North’s first failed launch.

The North’s attempt to put its first military spy satellite into orbit last Wednesday failed as its rocket crashed off the Korean Peninsula’s western coast. An emergency meeting of the UN Security Council was still convened at the request of the US, Japan, and other countries to discuss the launch because it had violated council resolutions banning the North from performing any launch using ballistic technology.

Kim’s influential sister who is also senior ruling party official, Kim Yo Jong, called the UN council a political appendage of the United States. A military surveillance satellite is among a list of sophisticated weapon systems that Kim Jong-Un has vowed to acquire amid tension with the United States.
