effects were meant to extend well into the future. the launches of 7 south korean missiles and one american missile in a live fire exercise, a tit for tat reply to north korea's launching of 8 missiles a day. earlier. the response came as south korea and its hawkish new president mark's memorial day commemorations. you and suck, you'll saying more than ever. global powers must work to contain north korea balcony. why? north korea's nuclear missile threats are getting sophisticated. 8 fired various ballistic missiles. yesterday it's programs a reaching the level that threatened not only the peace of the korean peninsula, but also northeast asia and the world's view. fannin sure. now you will, you send me that the world has almost grown accustomed to seeing this type of

weapons demonstration from north korea. indeed, in 2022 alone, north korea has launched 18 rounds of missile tests including intercontinental ballistic missiles. military intelligence suggests president kim jung own as pushing for north korea's 1st nuclear test in nearly 5 years. that doesn't work. who does the height? the north korea has repeatedly launched ballistic missiles, including new i see b ems at a high frequency. since the beginning of this year though, that you handle the series or north korean actions threatened the peace and stability of the region and the international community, because they cannot be tolerated a to school, thought that you mustn't. the north previous launches were last month as u. s. president joe biden wrapped up a trip to south korea and japan. when bitin reaffirmed the u. s. commitment to defending both allies and kim reaffirmed his desire from north korea to become a nuclear power. and john me now for more from several is reuters senior

correspondent, josh smith. josh joined us in south grim beside launches and response to north korea. does this somehow symbolized the new south korean policy towards it's in all the neighbor? it is certainly a return in some ways to a new old policy. one that we last saw insignificant levels back in 2017. during the day the the fire impurity threats between can go and former us president donald trump. this is not the 1st time they've done the joint rules this year. they also rolled out joint missile drill late last month. when north korea tested an icbm day after us has been job by and left the region after his 1st talks in the region. but as you mentioned, the south korean president unit, so q will, has promised to make this more of a regular occurrence in response to,
3:35 pm
to north korean missile launches. and given that north korea appears, intent on increasing the number of missiles that it has. i think it's a fair bet to say that we'll see more of these from the united states in south korea as well. talk to us a bit about those north korean method launches should they be viewed as missile tests or a sign of diplomacy? not korea stun. so there are certainly multiple reasons why north korea would test missiles including domestic messaging, as well as basically just developing the military technology that is once. at the same time there is undeniably geopolitical method. beyond that, the timing of the latest missiles, for example, came right after south korea and the united states held the 1st joint, naval brill involving an american aircraft carrier in a number of years. and so it's hard to see that it's entirely a coincidence at the same time,
3:36 pm
north korea has been battling what it says that it's 1st cobit outbreak. and something that's interesting that's happened during that time is that they stop publicizing or releasing any photos of their missile tests. so we're basically solely dependent on what a countries like south korea and japan report. so unlike some of their other tests earlier this year, these latest tests, we don't know a lot of details. we don't know exactly what they fired. although they do appear to be short range missiles. so not the biggest missiles which some analysts say would suggest perhaps a military grilled, practicing rather than developing some kind of new technology. i did want to talk to you about north korea as covert outbreak. i mean, given that they've announced they've admitted that they have an outbreak, it also appears to be that they don't have enough vaccination or any vaccinations for that matter or enough medical supplies to cope with this. yet we are seeing the miss i launches. i mean, what does that say about the countries priorities?
3:37 pm
that is a big question and one that for example, washington has not been hesitant to point out saying that, you know, if sanctions were really causing so many problems, why do they have the resources to conduct these tests at the same time and in north korea has said that these tests are it's self defense and basically a matter of life and death for the country itself. and that's the case that they've made to domestic audiences before. at the same time, you know, as mentioned, they haven't been publicizing this, including the folks at home. and analysts have said that may point to them being a bit worried about the imagery of them continuing to should be off while not having the resources necessarily about coping outbreak. and in the midst of all that old reports of the north is preparing for its fast nuclear passed since september 2017. what are you hurting? and so so the last we heard was late last month from south
3:38 pm
korean officials who went beyond kind of what we've seen in satellite imagery of them preparing some of the underground tunnels that they've previously used for the test to say that they had actually that north korea had actually begun testing components of a nuclear weapon, detonators, and other things which suggested that it was basically anything. now that we might see a new test, basically what officials here an analyst have said is that by all accounts and from everything that they can tell, all of the technical progress has been made toward resuming test. it basically all just comes down to when king john decides to conduct a new test or not. we'll leave them at the time. thank you so much for joining us from sir george smith. australia has offered indonesia or $200000000.00 australian dollar climate partnership. in addition to stronger bilateral ties,
3:39 pm

3:40 pm
here let me give you an example of only a couple of days back. basically the giant seawall in semerano, the capital city of central java a gave way and basically though, having parts of the entire city flooded. so the issue of global warming of rising sea level is a very much on the agenda, off indonesian politicians, but also of the o population in indonesia. so the offer by the australian prime minister or 2 is refer offer technical support for building an environmentally more stable, more friendly, new capital in indonesia was something was very much welcome. and then of course, you have the issue off, huge a solar potential in indonesia. but even more importantly, huge potential for hydro storage of that solar power, for instance, when they're rainy days in the rainy season. and for all of that, indonesia is of course looking for investment from abroad. not prime minister oven is also spoke of, of the strategic and economic interests between the 2 nations. what interests are
3:41 pm
these lab uneasy arrived here, of course, with a foreign minister, but also a, with a trade minister in a big business delegation. so business, very high on the agenda and then of course you have the strategic, a competition between the u. s. and china, in the, in the pacific region are with china, for instance, reaching out recently to pacific nations, 10 small pacific island nations to offer them a security pact. you have the u. s. reaching out with yorkers, security packed that australia joined together with you with the united kingdom, including nuclear submarines. and then you have indonesia in the midst of all of this trying to stay out of this rivalry. and that is basically the setting for the discussion sun. the indonesian president and the australian, a prime minister will have here this days are dug relations between nam indonesia
3:42 pm
and australia. haven't been the smoothest in their, in recent years. one things of their bought toolbox for example. or is this visit being viewed as somewhat of a reset? or that is what it's been framed from the australian side, at least. so a diplomatic priority giving to indonesia. and then the, the m australian prime minister observed that indonesia would be the next regional superpower. and that is, of course, or something that the indonesian a president likes to here. on the other hand, you have to see that it is completely normal for a new prime minister from australia to pay his 1st visit to the neighbouring islands of indonesia and experts have sat. they don't expect real fundamental change in world politics. it is clear now with arcus, at that in that australia has clearly placed itself in the rivalry between china
3:43 pm
and the u. s. on the u. s. site. and so the message really here is that they want to convey to indonesia that indonesia remains an extremely important partner in this new situation, as well as with the aim to maintain peace in the pacific region. care matters, did others asia pacific bureau chief in jakarta, thank you so much for joining us today. and that's it for today's shoulders. more from the region on our website, the devil dot gov. forward slash asia, and as ever you can follow us on facebook and twitter back to more of the same time . we'll see you then to buy people and trucks injured when trying to see the city center. more and more refugees are being turned away at the border. families played on the tax in syria
