The past week saw three different missile launches on the Korean peninsula. On Monday, the North tested a new type of cruise missile, which was responded to by the South, with an underwater missile launch on Wednesday. The North carried out two other missile launches on Wednesday in response to the South and President Joe Biden's dispatching of his envoy to Tokyo and Seoul to restart peace negotiations, which had been stalled for the past six months. Speaking to Radio Islam International, Sanusha Naidu, Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Global Dialogue, pointed out the inherent dangers in these missile launches, "it's becoming quite a dire situation in the region itself… it has dire implications for security [and] stability, especially with Kim Jong-un's sister getting involved."
