Soldado dos EUA atravessa a fronteira para a Coreia do Norte

By Jordi Bou

July 19, 2023 - Um soldado dos EUA está a ser mantido na Coreia do Norte depois de
atravessar a fronteira com a Coreia do Sul sem autorização, dando a
Pyongyang um trunfo de negociação com os EUA.

The U.S. military is scrambling to establish the fate of Private Travis T. King, who crossed into North Korea on Jun 18, while on an orientation tour of Joint Security Area (JSA) on the border between the two Koreas.

King who joined in 2021, was facing disciplinary action.

The crossing comes at a time of renewed tension on the Korean peninsula, with the arrival of a U.S. nuclear-armed ballistic missile submarine, and the test launch early on Jul 18 of two ballistic missiles into the sea by North Korea.

It was unclear how long North Korean authorities would hold the soldier but analysts said the incident could be valuable propaganda for the isolated country.
