Vice President Kamala Harris looked confused as she used binoculars to view North Korea from the demilitarized zone hours after claiming the United States had a “strong alliance” with the enemy.

Video of Harris’ visit to South Korea on Thursday shows the vice president, accompanied by U.S. soldiers, in awe as she gazes out over North Korea.

“There’s something to see…with your own eyes,” Harris comments. “And it’s so close.”

The service member then corrects her, saying, “It’s 50 yards away, mom.”

“Oh, okay,” she replied.

The Vice President then suddenly begins talking to American and South Korean soldiers in the DMZ about NASA’s Webb Telescope, which has taken pictures of distant galaxies.

“Have you seen the Webb Telescope photographs,” Harris told officers, who seemed confused over the unrelated subject.

“It’s the most humiliating thing,” Harris adds as the service members nod politely. ‘You have to see it.’

The exchange at the DMZ came just after her speech at the border site where she mistakenly touted the US alliance with “North Korea.”

“The United States shares a very important relationship, which is an alliance with the Republic of North Korea,” Harris said during a speech at the DMZ on Thursday, intending to refer to the Republic of Korea, the official name of South Korea.

“It’s a strong and lasting alliance,” she continued, not seeming to recognize her mistake.

His remarks professing US support for South Korea’s defense came as North Korea launched another missile on Thursday in the face of the vice president’s trip to Asia.

A communications adviser to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz called Harris a “flat-headed moron” for his remarks.

South Korean, American and Japanese warships launched their first trilateral anti-submarine drills in five years, after North Korea renewed missile tests this week in an apparent response to bilateral training by forces South Korean and American.

The North’s five missile launches, the first in a month, took place before and after US Vice President Harris’ visit to South Korea on Thursday and reaffirmed the US’ “ironclad” commitment to the security of its Asian allies.

The day-long training off the east coast of the Korean peninsula is meant to meet a North Korean push to improve its ability to fire missiles from submarines, according to a statement from the South Korean navy. .

Pyongyang has been building bigger submarines, including a nuclear-powered one, and testing sophisticated missiles that can be fired in recent years.

This is an alarming development for its rivals as it is more difficult to detect missiles launched underwater in advance.

South Korean officials said last weekend they had detected signs that North Korea was preparing to test a missile from a submarine.

Friday’s drills involve the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan as well as American, South Korean and Japanese destroyers, according to the Navy statement.

During the training, navy ships from the three nations were to search for and track a US nuclear-powered submarine posing as a North Korean submarine while exchanging related information, according to media reports.

“We will respond and neutralize any form of North Korean provocations overwhelmingly and decisively,” said Captain Cho Chung-ho, commander of the South Korean navy troops who participated in the training.

In addition to its submarine-launched missiles, North Korea also has a variety of nuclear-capable missiles that put the three collaborating nations within striking range.

This year, Pyongyang has carried out a record number of missile tests as it refuses to resume long-stalled nuclear diplomacy with the United States.

Friday’s workout comes as South Korea and Japan try to mend ties frayed by history and trade disputes.

The two Asian countries together host a total of 80,000 American troops. Earlier this week, the USS Ronald Reagan took part in joint US-South Korean exercises near the peninsula, the first such bilateral exercise involving a US aircraft carrier since 2017.

The North’s latest missile tests took place on Thursday, hours after Harris left South Korea.

During her visit to the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas, she said, “In the South, we see a thriving democracy. In the North, we see a brutal dictatorship.
