(HorizonPost.com) – Perhaps President Joe Biden should be forgiven for calling the United States’ 20 years in Afghanistan the country’s longest war, considering many Americans are unaware the Korean War is still technically ongoing 71 years after the first shots were fired. However, the two Korean leaders sharing the peninsula are very much aware no peace agreement is in place. Now, the Democratic People’s Republic of (North) Korea (DPRK) is highlighting the reason for tensions yet again.
On the final day of the annual United Nations General Assembly, North Korea’s ambassador to the body, Kim Song, issued his edict to the United States. Kim said the US needs to stop acting in a hostile manner and permanently end all military exercises with the Republic of (South) Korea (ROK). This demand came as a requirement to even consider South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s proposal to officially end the war.

While Kim delivered his remarks, the North launched a self-proclaimed hypersonic missile into the sea off the east coast of the peninsula. Back in August, the White House attempted to reassure the DPRK they have no hostile intent towards them and asked them to return to the negotiation table to discuss ending any nuclear weapons buildup.
