North Korea fires two more missiles | abroad

“Our military personnel discovered two short-range missiles launched from North Korea that fell into the Sea of ​​Japan,” the South Korean military said. The launch took place around 4:32 pm local time (8:32 am Belgian time).

The situation on the Korean Peninsula is tense. Despite severe international sanctions imposed on its weapons program, Pyongyang has built up an arsenal of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM). North Korea conducted a record number of weapons tests in the past year, including the most advanced intercontinental ballistic missiles. But UN resolutions prohibit North Korea from testing ballistic missiles. It can be equipped with a nuclear warhead.

The United States, Japan and South Korea have warned that tensions on the Korean Peninsula will escalate if the North Korean regime conducts a nuclear test. This would be the first in five years and the seventh in total. Washington, Tokyo and Seoul say they will impose harsh sanctions if Pyongyang conducts a nuclear test.

The new launch is seen as a response to joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea in the region three days ago.
