North Korea launched this Wednesday two unidentified ballistic missiles towards the Sea of ​​Japan (called the East Sea in the two Koreas), reported the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), which continues to analyze the details of the event.

“North Korea fired two unidentified ballistic missiles into the East Sea from the central region of the country past noon on September 15,” the JCS explained in a brief statement.

The last time the regime fired a ballistic missile was at the end of last March, when he tested what appeared to be a version of his KN-23 projectile, capable of tracing trajectories that were very difficult to intercept.

The UN punishes North Korea’s ballistic missile launches based on resolutions passed as punishment for its development of weapons of mass destruction.

This Wednesday’s launch was also detected by the Japanese Coast Guard, which has indicated that the projectiles fell outside the Japanese Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

The Japanese Coast Guard notified at 1:38 p.m. local time (4:38 GMT) the detection of the launch, Defense said in information collected by the Japanese public broadcaster NHK.

The launch comes after the regime claimed to have tested a new type of long-range cruise missile over the weekend.

It also comes after it was reported in late August that Pyongyang reactivated facilities to obtain nuclear fuel that it can be used in bombs and that Sel, who just announced that he would develop new missiles with greater range and more destructiveness, was testing his first submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM).

This arms escalation occurs at a time when The Denuclearization Dialogue Still Stagnant since the failed Hani summit in 2019, in which the US deemed North Korea’s disarmament offer insufficient and refused to lift sanctions.

The US has insisted in recent months that it meet with Pyongyang without preconditions “where and when” to try to reignite the talks, but has so far had no response from Pyongyang.
