North Korea attempted to put its first military spy satellite into orbit on May 31, but the rocket carrying the satellite crashed into the Yellow Sea.

The launch of the first spy satellite done by North Korea to strengthen the power of the army was unsuccessful recently. It was launched by him to monitor rival South Korea as well as US military exercises. Now a report has come out, in which it has been told that a high-level meeting was held regarding the recent failed launch, in which North Korea has put a good class of its officers. 

North Korea's ruling party condemned the failed launch at a high-level meeting. Bitter criticism was also given to the responsible officers in this meeting.

North Korea attempted to put its first military spy satellite into orbit on May 31, but the rocket carrying the satellite crashed into the Yellow Sea. Engine fault is said to be the reason behind this. North Korea had said it would launch the satellite again as soon as possible.

In the report of the meeting of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, the ruling party strongly criticized the officials who had irresponsibly prepared the satellite launch. Along with this, these people have also demanded an inquiry. The committee said that it will soon launch this satellite again. Earlier, Pyongyang had said that it was needed to defeat the growing US military presence in the region.

The plan to launch the military spy satellite was condemned by the US, South Korea and Japan. They say it violates United Nations resolutions barring the nuclear-armed country from conducting any tests using ballistic missile technology.
