The North Korean military reportedly fired two unidentified projectiles into the open sea in quick succession. According to South Korean data, the two projectiles were flown after the start on early Thursday morning (local time) on the east coast about 430 kilometers, said the General Staff of the South Korean armed forces.

At first, it was unclear what kind of projectiles it was in the weapon test. Experts suspect that it may have repeatedly been a ballistic missile, as they had tested North Korea in May, reported the South Korean news agency Yonhap, UN resolutions prohibit rocket tests using “ballistic missile technology”.

It is North Korean first weapon test since the meeting of US President Donald Trump with rulers Kim Jong Un at the inter-Korean border in June.

“North Korea is clearly annoyed that the US and South Korea are conducting joint military exercises,” said Harry Kazianis of the Washington Center for the National Interest on the report. “We should not be shocked by this move and we should have even seen it coming”.

Talks on nuclear disarmament between North Korea and the United States have faltered after a second summit between Trump and Kim had failed in Vietnam in February.

North Korea’s last weapon tests took place in May. At that time both short-range missiles and smaller missiles were tested. Kim led the first flight of a previously untried weapon.

It was not until Tuesday that the state-owned North Korean news agency KCNA reported that Kim had inspected a large, newly built submarine.
