North Korea will collapse by nukes and missiles

North Korea launched four short-range projectiles into waters off its east coast, a day before South Korean President Park Geun-hye began a state visit to China last week. North Korea fired four short-range projectiles from the vicinity of Wonsan into waters in the East Sea in the afternoon of the 26th of last month. North Korea launched several short-range projectiles into the East Sea in May despite South Korea's demand to end such provocations that could heighten tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Though any firing of short-range missiles or projectiles by Pyongyang does not constitute violations of U.N. resolutions banning the North from test-firing ballistic missiles, South Korea and the United States consider that as a provocative act. While having summit talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing, Park called for North Korea's denuclearization and described Pyongyang's goal of simultaneously seeking economic development and nuclear armament as unattainable. North Korea earlier in the day reacted vehemently to Park's criticisms of its policy, calling them unacceptable provocations against its regime's dignity and declaring that its nuclear capability can never become a bargaining tool and is non-negotiable.
