The regime in North Korea continues to escalate its military threats: After firing a missile over Japanese soil for the first time in years, the military is now firing two short-range missiles at Japan again.
North Korea continues to conduct missile tests. Yonhap news agency, citing the South Korean military, reported that North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles in the direction of the Sea of Japan. No further details were initially given.
The Japanese Prime Minister’s Office also confirmed on Twitter that the North Korean missile had been relaunched. Accordingly, the rocket landed in the sea outside Japan’s exclusive economic zone. The Japanese Coast Guard has so far received no reports of damage to Japanese ships, national broadcaster NHK said.
Address is USA
North Korea has conducted its seventh missile test in the past two weeks. Last Tuesday, a medium-range missile flew over the Japanese archipelago for the first time in five years. The latest missile launch came hours after a naval exercise between South Korean and US forces. The USS Ronald Reagan, a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, also participated in the exercise.
Earlier, North Korea’s National Aviation Authority justified the missile launch as a defensive move against the US. According to a report by state news agency KCNA, these pose no threat to the region’s immediate neighbors.
UN resolutions prohibit North Korea from testing any range of ballistic missiles, which, depending on the design, can also carry nuclear warheads.
