On the 29th, North Korea criticized the US-led ‘Global Sentinel’, a joint exercise to measure the international space situation, calling it a “dangerous move that could lead to a space war.”

The Labor Party’s official newspaper, the Rodong Sinmun, claimed on this day, “The fact that the United States is blatantly revealing its attempt to provoke a space war in alliance with its followers is an expression of its vicious ambition to maximize the space arms race and drive the new Cold War to its extreme.”

The newspaper mentioned the space race between the United States and the Soviet Union in the past, including the launch of the Soviet Union’s ‘Sputnik 1′ and the United States’ ‘Discovery-1’, and said, “The United States is using today’s new Cold War as an opportunity to once again overthrow its strategic opponents and seize world hegemony. “We are planning to use this as an opportunity,” he pointed out.

“The nightmare of space war, which many people have been concerned about and doubtful about, is increasingly becoming a reality, and this suggests that a new Cold War is rapidly entering the dangerous zone,” he said. “This multinational space war exercise is “As shown, the United States is preparing to launch a full-scale war by mobilizing the space capabilities of its followers,” he claimed.

He also said, “Since the early 1980s during the Cold War, international discussions have been held every year to prevent the deployment of space weapons and the space arms race, but no agreement has yet been reached because the United States has been vehemently opposed.” “It is none other than the United States that is openly turning its back on the international community’s consistent call for militarization.”

The United States has been hosting Global Sentinel under the auspices of Space Command since 2014. This year, it was held at the Vandenberg Space Force Base in California from the 5th to the 16th, and a total of 28 countries participated. Our military has also participated since 2017 and participated for the 6th time this year.
