North Korea Launches Yet Another Missile Test As U.S. Meets Asia To Discuss Threat North Korea Launches Yet Another Missile Test As U.S. Meets Asia To Discuss Threat

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un launched two medium-range ballistic missiles on Wednesday, just hours after South Korea, Japan and the U.S. met in The Hague partly to discuss the security threat Pyongyang is posing.According to a spokesperson from the South Korean Foreign Ministry, two Nodong missiles were fired from a mobile launcher north of Pyongyang and flew for about 650km before falling into the sea off the Korean Peninsula’s eastern coast.

The U.S. and South Korea called the missile test a troubling and provocative escalation, pointing out that the mid-range missiles were a step up from the short-range missiles North Korea has been firing in recent weeks.“This missile is capable of hitting not only most of Japan but also Russia and China,” South Korean foreign ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said.
