Ignoring the threats of the United States and South Korea, North Korea launched a missile again. The country launched an intermediate-range ballistic missile on Tuesday (April 2). South Korea and Japan strongly condemned it.

North Korea launched a hypersonic missile last month. This time the country has launched a new medium-range ballistic missile. South Korea claimed it was launched from the capital Pyongyang at around 7am local time on Tuesday.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement that the missile fell into the sea about 600 kilometers away after launch. The Japanese Ministry of Defense believes that it can cover a distance of 650 km. At the same time, the missile is believed to be capable of striking at a height of 100 km.

Japan said the missile fell outside its ‘Exclusive Economic Zone’. However, the Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida condemned the missile launch again. He expressed fear that regional peace and stability will be destroyed by this.

The top spokesman of the country’s government said that Tokyo has protested the launch of missiles at Pyongyang through China.

Meanwhile, Russia and North Korea are increasing their military ties amid regional tensions. And the United States, South Korea and Japan are increasing security cooperation. In this situation, US President Joe Biden, President of South Korea and Prime Minister of Japan will meet in the side meeting of the NATO conference in the United States next July. The Japanese media reported this information.
