For the fourth time in two weeks, North Korea has launched an unidentified projectile off its east coast. Apparently, North Korea is upset with both the United States and South Korea “for continuing their joint military exercises the North says could derail fragile nuclear diplomacy.”
North Korea test-fired what South Korean officials said appeared to have been a new type of short-range missile.
Those two missiles landed in the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea, according to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).
Last week, Trump told reporters that short range missiles were standard and did not violate their denuclearization agreement.
Trump says he has "no problem" with North Korea testing missiles because they are just "short-range missiles" that are "very standard." pic.twitter.com/fdKtQ6yrBE
