North Korea launches 2 ballistic missiles off the coast

SEOUL, South Korea – North Korea fired two ballistic missiles off its east coast on Wednesday, the South Korean military said, two days after North Korea claimed to have tested a new missile in its first weapons test in six months.

The two ballistic missiles were launched from a site in central North Korea and flew into the waters off the east coast of the Korean Peninsula on Wednesday afternoon, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.

The statement said that intelligence authorities in South Korea and the United States are analyzing more details about the North Korean launches. He said that South Korea has strengthened its surveillance stance against North Korea.

The Japan Coast Guard confirmed that both objects landed outside the Japanese Exclusive Economic Zone in the waters between Japan and the Korean Peninsula. No ships or planes reported damage, the Coast Guard said.

North Korea’s resumption of test activity is likely an attempt to pressure the Biden administration for a diplomatic freeze after North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un failed to harness his arsenal for financial gain. during the presidency of Donald Trump.

Talks between the United States and North Korea have stalled since 2019, when the Americans rejected North Korea’s demand for major sanctions relief in exchange for the dismantling of a former nuclear facility. The Kim administration has so far rejected the Biden administration’s proposals for dialogue, demanding that Washington first abandon its “hostile” policies.

North Korea ended a yearlong hiatus in ballistic testing in March by firing two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea, continuing the tradition of testing new American administrations with weapons demonstrations aimed at gauging Washington’s response and snatching concessions. .
