Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida announced two missiles fired by the DPRK, which could be ballistic missiles. According to him, there were no reports of damage or injuries after the launches. Deputy Secretary General of the Cabinet of Ministers of Japan Yoshihiko Isozaki said that the DPRK had expressed a protest.
“Such launches are a violation of the UN Security Council resolutions. This is extremely unfortunate. In this regard, we protested through diplomatic channels, ”said Mr. Isozaki during a press conference (quoted by TASS).
Mr. Kishida called it regrettable that the DPRK has been carrying out missile launches since September. “At present, there has been no confirmation of damage or injuries after the launches,” he said (quoted by RIA Novosti). Note that earlier the Joint Command of the Armed Forces of South Korea reported one shell fired into the Sea of Japan.
The new launch from the DPRK is taking place against the backdrop of the North’s intentions to restore communications with South Korea. Before that, the DPRK conducted a series of missile launches and announced the testing of the Hwaseong-8 hypersonic missile.
