North Korea fires two ballistic missiles, South Korean military says – CNN
The other SLBM nations are also nuclear powers but South Korea does not have nuclear weapons.
Earlier, North Korea fired two unidentified ballistic missiles into waters off the east coast of the Korean Peninsula on Wednesday, according to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.
South Korea said the missiles covered a distance of about 800 kilometers (500 miles) while going as high as 60 kilometers (37 miles).
Japan’s Defense Ministry said the North Korean projectiles are believed to have fallen into waters outside its exclusive economic zone.
Still, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga called the North Korean launches “outrageous,” adding they “threaten the peace and security of our country and region.”
While the US military’s Indo-Pacific Command in Hawaii said the North Korean test did not pose any “immediate threat” to the US or its allies, it said in a statement that the launch “highlights the destabilizing impact of the DPRK’s illicit weapons program.”
