TOKYO—North Korea fired at the very least one suspected ballistic missile early Sunday morning, Japan mentioned, the most recent in a sequence of such exams lately.
The Japanese coast guard warned ships to be alert and the Protection Ministry mentioned it was investigating.
Japanese public broadcaster NHK mentioned two missiles have been fired in fast succession and each fell outdoors of Japan’s unique financial zone. That means they have been shorter-range launches than one on Tuesday that sailed over the nation for the primary time in 5 years.
Pyongyang has launched almost two dozen ballistic missiles this 12 months, essentially the most launches it has performed in a single 12 months.
The launches violate United Nations Safety Council resolutions. However U.S.-led efforts to heap further penalties on North Korea have been blocked by Russia and China, which advocate a calming of sanctions.
