GEO´- GeoPoliticalNews | North Korea fires second ballistic missile in a week

North Korea has fired a second short-range ballistic missiles off its east coast in the Wosnan area, the second such launch in a week says South Korea.

NK has previously expressed anger claiming that planned joint military exercises with the US were no more than a "preparation of war". saying that the launches were a "solemn warning" to Seoul. This is the first such action since US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met in the DMZ last June.

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) confirmed that the missiles were launched at 05:06 (20:06 GMT Tuesday) and 05:27local time from the Kalma area near the port of Wonsan. They flew 250km (155 miles) reaching an altitude of 30km before landing in the Sea of Japan.

Interestingly, the South's defence minister Jeong Kyeong-doo said the missiles used were identified as a different type from previously identified models.
