The armies of South Korea and Japan say North Korea fired a ballistic missile into its eastern seas on Tuesday, its second test in a week. In the past, North Korea carried out more frequent weapons tests in 2021, which underscores how North Korea has been using its military capabilities during its lockdown in the wake of the global pandemic and the stalling of nuclear peace talks with the US. Continuing to expand.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said North Korea fired a single ballistic missile from an inland area into its eastern seas. South Korean and US forces are analyzing the launch. It is not immediately clear how far the missile fell. Japan’s Prime Minister’s Office and the Defense Ministry also said the weapon was likely a ballistic missile, but officials did not yet provide details.

‘North Korea continues to fire missiles’
Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said officials were checking the safety of ships and aircraft around Japan. There were no immediate reports of any disruption or damage. “It is extremely regrettable that North Korea continues to fire missiles,” Kishida said, shortly after the UN Security Council discussed North Korea’s first launch.

The Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense offices said they were looking into reports of the launch, but there was no immediate threat to Guam, a major US military base in the Pacific. Earlier, North Korea had also tested a suspected ballistic missile in the Eastern Sea area about six days ago.
