According to South Korean sources, North Korea launched unidentified projectiles from its east coast on Wednesday. The Japanese coast guard also confirmed the observation and suspected that it could be ballistic missiles.
According to the South Korean General Staff and the Japanese Coast Guard, Pyongyang launched two unidentified projectiles from its east coast into the Sea of Japan. According to the General Staff of South Korea, the rockets were launched on Wednesday in the central part of North Korea and then flown towards the Sea of Japan.
According to the Japanese Coast Guard, the projectiles, which are said to be ballistic missiles, appear to have landed outside Japan’s exclusive economic zone. Neither the Japanese authorities nor the South Korean military have released any further details about the alleged test.
Japan’s Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga called the launching of the missiles a report by the news agency Reuters according to outrageous and spoke of a threat to peace and security in the region. South Korea convened the National Security Council.
Reports of new projectile testing came shortly after North Korean state media announced that the country successfully tested a new long-range missile over the weekend that flew 1,500 kilometers before hitting a target in Pyongyang’s territorial waters.
The US Department of Defense said this shows that North Korea is a threat to “its neighbors and the international community”. Japanese politicians were also “concerned” about these reports.
Just a day after this test, envoys from the United States, South Korea and Japan met to discuss Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programs. The head of the US delegation, Sung Kim, said that “recent developments in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) remind us of the importance of close communication and cooperation between the three countries”, apparently referring to the Missile test from Monday.
