“North Korea fired on Sunday an unidentified projectile from a region near its west coast”, South Korea’s military said, this was “confirmed by U.S. officials”.
South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff have said that North Korea has fired an unknown projectile, widely believed to be a ballistic missile.
This would appear to be the first missile test by North Korea since a failed launch on the 29th of April at the height of tensions with the United States.
This test is also the first since this week’s election of a new seemingly more peace minded South Korean President, Moon Jae-in.
