N Korea conducts mass evacuation and blackout drills : Report

Reports of mass evacuation drills in N Korea have raised fears of another ballistic missile test unless it is dictator Kim Jong-un deliberately unnerving his population.

Interestingly there were no drills in the capital of Pyongyang.

Recent months have seen the Korean leader and US president trade threats of war and personal insults as North has the world on edge by having conducted a sixth nuclear test and test-launching missiles capable of reaching the US mainland.
Experts have for decades warned about threat posed binuclear proliferation in the East.

For one, experts believe that nuclear-armed Japan or South risks escalating any potential low-level military conflict with North to catastrophic levels as well as undermining their relationship with US.

Meanwhile in response to the drills symbolic of impending war,US, S Korea and Japan held trilateral talks and urged North to “refrain from its destructive and reckless path of development.”
