Seven years ago, we learned that the South Korean Air Force would use 40 F-35As. The contract was signed in 2014 for $6.5 billion.
This did not stop the Korean summit in Panmunjeom, where Seoul and Pyongyang entered into peace and cooperation agreements, along with Singapore and Hanoi, between the United States and North Korea. And last month, for the first time in history, US President Donald Trump stepped into North Korea and had a “good conversation” with Kim Jong-Un.
In addition, in March, Lockheed-Martin presented the first F-35A to RoKAF, which expects to produce another 10 by the end of 2019. It will be finalized by 2021.
In addition, the sharp criticism made by North Korea on July 11 of the F-35A South Korea is a seemingly important proposition.
South Korean authorities are “humiliated and hurt” for “speaking of coordination and cooperation” between the two Koreas as they acquire more weapons from the United States, a senior official said.
In addition, saying the unidentified leader, Seoul “knew that the arrival of the jet would be a very dangerous situation that would provoke us.”
“Undoubtedly, the surrender of the F-35A was intended to ensure military control over countries in the region and, in particular, to open the ‘door’ to invade the North at the scene of the crash, the Korean Peninsula,” the official said. In addition, he added, “we have no choice but to develop and look for special weapons to destroy deadly weapons” of South Korea.
That said, Pyongyang certainly has not finished protesting the Seoul military operation. In December 2017, it was reported that South Korea was considering the acquisition of the F-35B, STOVL.
As a reminder, North Korea has promised to work for the “conversion” of the Korean peninsula, after conducting a final test of nuclear weapons and developing a mobile phone unit. This action was approved by the National Security Council.
