Seoul – North Korea has fired two ballistic missiles from an airport in the capital, Pyongyang, towards the Sea of ​​Japan, the South Korean military said. According to the Japanese Coast Guard, it could also have been ballistic missiles. The DPRK has conducted several missile tests since the beginning of this year, earning criticism from the international community, Reuters reported.

Today’s test apparently involved two short-range ballistic missiles fired east of Pyongyang Airport, the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.

Japanese Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi said the missiles had covered a distance of about 300 kilometers and landed in the sea off the east coast of North Korea. Kishi reminded that the development of DPRK ballistic missiles is prohibited by UN Security Council resolutions and that the North Korean tests pose a serious problem for the entire international community and Japan itself.

This is the fourth North Korean missile test this year. The previous three DPRKs undertook last and last week. In two cases, she claimed to have successfully tested hypersonic missiles. One flew to a distance of 700 kilometers, the other hit a target 1000 kilometers away. In the last of these three tests, North Korea fired a ballistic missile carried by the railroad.

The US last week announced sanctions against six North Koreans, one Russian and an entity that they say is responsible for procuring goods for North Korea’s weapons program.
