North Korea launches 3 missiles towards Sea of Japan


The North Korean military launched three missiles on Monday night, the Yonhap news agency reported with reference to the General Staff of the Republic of Korea.

Earlier, Seoul informed about the launch of at least one missile by the DPRK military.

According to the South Korean military command, the missiles were launched towards the Sea of Japan from areas adjacent to the eastern city of Sondok in Hamgen Namdo province. There are no information about the type of missiles, their range and altitude.

Kyodo notes that the Japanese government also announced a missile launch, noting that the missiles did not appear to have reached Japan's exclusive economic zone.

The administration of the President of South Korea, commenting on the next launch, said that they did not contribute to the establishment of peace on the Korean peninsula.

In August last year, North Korea conducted the first known test of an extra-large missile launcher in Sondok, recalls Yonhap.

In early March, the DPRK carried the first launch of several short-range missiles this year. This has been criticized by many countries since North Korea’s testing of ballistic missiles violates UN Security Council resolutions.
