A 17-year-old Korean-Australian shearer tells us much about our history — and what we can improve
Australian-Korean relationships run long and deep between people, more so than our diplomatic ties. But we can improve that bond.As John Corea’s story shows, the Korean-Australian relationship began much earlier than many realise. People-to-people relations are longer and deeper than state-to-state relations between South Korea and Australia, which only celebrated the 60th anniversary of their diplomatic relationship last year. In the coming years, human relations should be the real driver to strengthen ties between the two countries. The relationship will be increasingly important as both countries weather geopolitical turmoil in the Indo-Pacific.
a day after the youngest North Korean rocket test, the USA and South Korea have fired floors in the region itself. The South Korean military said that in response to the provocation of North Korea, the USA and South Korea had shot four floor-floor rockets towards the Japanese sea (Eastern Sea). Both sides had fired two rockets each, which had hit the sham destinations precisely. The allies of the allies have been demonstrated to deter further provocations. ©-/South Korea Defense Ministry/AP/dpa F15K combat jets of the South Korean Air Force and F-16 fighter jets of the US air weapon fly in formation during a joint exercise.

North Korea fires fourth missile in a week as South Korea stages military show
North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles toward the sea off its east coast on Saturday, marking its fourth launch in a week. © Associated Press Pic: AP South Korean, Japanese and US militaries said they detected the two launches, with estimates indicating they flew between 220 and 250 miles before landing in waters between Japan and the Korean peninsula.Pyongyang's launch follows a continuation of a regional arms race between the Koreas, which has seen a major increase in weapons and military spending.
Both the USA and NATO sharply condemned the test. As a direct reaction, South Korea's armed forces had fired two precision bombs in the yellow sea. In addition, together with US-16 f-16 combustion aircraft, flight maneuvers were held. The yellow sea is surrounded by China and the Korean peninsula.
the last time when North Korea let a rocket fly over Japan in 2017, the country carried out a nuclear weapon test just a few days later. According to the North Korea expert Go Myong from the Asan Institute based in Seoul, the probability is currently also "very high" that North Korea could carry out a nuclear waving test at the end of the month.
UN Resolutions prohibit North Korea the testing of ballistic rockets of any range, which can also promote a nuclear warhead depending on the type. Most recently, North Korea tested two ballistic short -range missiles on Saturday - that was the fourth rocket shot within a week.

North Korea expert Ankit Panda says that despite recent developments there’s little chance for a revival in diplomacy.The timing of that test is the million-dollar question that government leaders, military planners, and people on the Korean Peninsula and beyond are asking of Kim Jong Un — North Korea’s 38-year-old “supreme leader” whose finger is on the button.
