In a lengthy interview with reporters on Sunday, an official of the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said the shooting was apparently not a planned provocation because the area in which it occurred was agricultural land, but he declined to give a clear conclusion about this incident.

“In the absence of a vision (of the target) and in the presence of fog, could it be a real provocation?” He said.

Choi Kang, vice president of the Asian Institute of Political Studies, said that the timing of this provocation proves that Kim is still in charge of the North Korean army.

“Rather than launching missiles and supervising the launching of a missile, the CKM may remind us that I am,” Yes, I am in good health and still in power, “he added.
