North Korea tests more missiles despite efforts at diplomatic solutions
North Korea has carried out a missile test for the second time in a week, the South Korean military reported on Wednesday. Pyongyang launched two short-range ballistic missiles, just like it did on July 25 when North Korean leader Kim Jung-un spoke of a warning to Seoul.
South Korea condemned the test, with Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha stating that “North Korea’s actions do not help ease military tensions, nor do they help keep the momentum for talks that are under way.”
North Korean leader Kim Jung-un met with US President Donald Trump in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea last month. During that meeting, both leaders agreed to a new round of talks on North Korea’s nuclear program.
