North Korea Fires ‘Unidentified Projectile’ into East Sea – Reports
MOSCOW, March 6 (PNA/Sputnik) — Pyongyang launched an “unidentified projectile” into the East Sea on Monday, South Korean media reported.
A projectile was shot from a site located near the country’s Dongchang-ri long-range missile launch center at around 7:36 and fell into the East Sea after flying over the country, Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said as cited by the Yonhap news agency.
?The launch occurred amid the joint drills between South Korean and American militaries, indicating an “apparent” protest from Pyongyang, Yonhap noted.
North Korea’s nuclear program has been a source for concern for its closest neighbor, South Korea, as well as for the international community. On February 12, Pyongyang launched a medium-range ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan and declared the test successful. This and a number of previous launches were considered to be in violation of the UNSC resolutions by the United Nations. (PNA/Sputnik)
