According to both South Korea and the US, North Korea has launched two more short-range ballistic missiles from the Hamhung area of North Korea.
North Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said, “Our military is monitoring the situation in case of additional launches while maintaining a readiness posture.”
The country has now launched a total of five missiles in response to the US and South Korea’s on-going military exercises. The latest launch follows Trump’s earlier claim that he received a “very beautiful letter” yesterday from North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong Un.
