North Korea 'FIRES missile' after threatening United States with war

North Korea 'FIRES missile' after threatening United States with war”

South Korea's defence ministry said "unidentified projectiles", fired at 6:49 am (2149 GMT Friday), flew some 250 kilometres (155 miles) towards the Sea of Japan.

South Korea's presidential office says the USA and South Korean militaries will proceed with their ongoing war games "even more thoroughly" in response to North Korea's latest short-range missile launches.

The U.S. Pacific Command has revised its assessment of the latest North Korean missile launches, saying the first and third projectiles did not fail in flight.

North Korea's state media earlier today said that leader Kim Jong Un inspected a special operation forces training of the country's army that simulated attacks on South Korean islands along the countries' western sea border in what appeared to be in response to the ongoing U.S.

Japan's NHK broadcast said the projectiles did not appear to be objects that could threaten Japan's safety.

But US Pacific Command said that they believed the projectiles to be ballistic missiles.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command said it determined that the three ballistic missile launches did not pose a threat to North America. -South Korea war games.

Washington has repeatedly urged China, North Korea's main ally and trading partner, to do more to rein in Pyongyang.

Last year, Pyongyang fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile on August 24, a day before the anniversary, and went on to carry out its fifth nuclear test on September 9, the country's founding day.

What started as North Korea trying to be a tough guy in the fight has made them the laughing stock of military everywhere.

The sanctions are meant to pressure Pyongyang to end its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said on Saturday that Trump was aware of the launches.

The country has fired 18 missiles during 12 tests since February, further perfecting its technology with each launch. "We have to respond firmly", said Onodera.
