North Korea fires weapons
NORTH Korea has fired two projectiles towards its eastern sea, South Korea’s military said, an apparent resumption of weapons tests aimed at ramping up pressure on the US over a stalemate in nuclear negotiations.
Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the weapons were fired from a region near the North Korean capital of Pyongyang.
Japan’s Defence Ministry said the North Korean weapons did not reach Japan’s territorial waters. It follows statements of displeasure over the slow pace of nuclear negotiations with Washington.
