Also, they say, this satellite took a photo of military bases.
This was discussed during a briefing by Pentagon spokesman General Patrick Ryder.
Journalists asked how the United States assesses this situation and whether North Korea is really behind it.
"I don't have any information about what the North Korean satellite did. I have nothing else to give. I will say that there are a lot of images of the Pentagon and the White House on the Internet, so I'll just leave it at that," the Pentagon spokesman said.
Also, North Korea completely cancels the inter-Korean military agreement, which provides for the deployment of guard posts and concentrated troops on the line of demarcation.
Therefore, the United States continues to monitor the situation closely.
"At the moment, I do not have specific information about the possible deployment of North Korean forces. What I will reiterate is that extended U.S. deterrence — our commitment to expanded U.S. deterrence against the Republic of Korea and Japan will remain ironclad," the Pentagon said.
Prior to that, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin returned from his second trip this year to the Korean Peninsula, and he made it very clear when he was in Seoul, after seven decades of maintaining peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula, the U.S.-South Korea alliance stands still.
Military analyst Sean Bell suggested in his podcast that North Korea could count on technological assistance from Russia in exchange for weapons provided by Pyongyang. He noted that the DPRK authorities want to have a military satellite and have already tried to launch it twice.
