Summary

North Korea on Friday fired two short-range ballistic missiles in its third weapons launch this month, officials in South Korea said, in an apparent reprisal for fresh sanctions imposed by the Biden administration for its continuing test launches. Japan's Prime Minister's Office and the Defense Ministry also detected the launch, while its coast guard urged vessels to pay attention to falling objects.The South's National Security Council held an emergency meeting and expressed "strong regret" over the North's launches on Friday, the presidential Blue House said Friday, according to the Reuters news agency.The U.S. Indo-Pacific Command issued a statement identical to the ones it put out after Pyongyang's tests earlier this month, saying, "We are aware of the ballistic missile launch and are consulting closely with our allies and partners. The previous test-launch of a purported hypersonic missile on Tuesday - the second a week - was overseen by leader Kim Jong Un, who said it would greatly increase his country's nuclear "war deterrent." North Korea has been ramping up tests of new, potentially nuclear-capable missiles designed to overwhelm missile defenses in the region.
