On Wednesday morning, North Korea has fired two ballistic missiles in Japanese waters, provoking strong reactions from Japan and US. One missile landed in Sea of Japan and another one explored after launch.
The missile fired appears to be a mid-range Rodong missile few about 1000 kilometres before landing in the international waters, about 200 kilometres from Japan’s coast. North Korean Rodong missiles have a range of 1250 kilometres enough to target entire Japan.
Japan, South Korean and US have condemned the Attack. “It’s a serious threat against our country’s security. This is an outrageous act that cannot be tolerated” Mr. Shinzo Abe, Japan’s prime minister said.
