The North Korean government fired missiles for the second time in a short time on Thursday, according to reports from South Korea, Japan and the United States. According to Seoul, the communist country fired at least two missiles. The projectiles ended in the eastern waters.
The South Korean Army Chief of Staff said that at least two “unknown objects” were launched from the east coast of North Korea. It was not known what kind of rockets they were.
Japan said on Thursday that it might have been ballistic missiles. The projectiles did not reach Japanese territorial waters. The Japanese Coast Guard had previously warned ships not to approach falling objects.
Last weekend, North Korea also fired two short-range missiles, according to South Korea and the United States. It was later known that they were cruise missiles within the United Nations bases.
These are the first launches since the inauguration of US President Joe Biden, who has yet to take a clear position on North Korea.
The United States has previously indicated that it is open to dialogue with Pyongyang. The communist country flatly rejected this and stressed that it would only speak out when the United States stops military training in South Korea, among other things.
