North Korea Fires “Projectiles” Into Sea, Says Seoul

Seoul: (HRNW) North Korea fired two projectiles into the sea early Thursday, the South’s military said, in what could be its first ballistic missile test during the administration of Joe Biden.

The nuclear-armed North has a long history of using weapons tests as provocations, in a carefully calibrated process to forward its objectives.

After a tumultuous relationship between leader Kim and president Donald Trump, Pyongyang had been biding its time since the new administration took office, not even officially acknowledging its existence until last week.

Seoul’s joint chiefs of staff said in a statement that the “unidentified projectiles” were launched into the Sea of Japan, known as the East Sea in Korea, from South Hamgyong province.

No further information on the device type was immediately available, but they added the military had “strengthened its monitoring posture in close coordination with the US”.
