South Korea: Says North Korea fired two ballistic missiles of ‘unknown type’

North Korea says its nuclear status is “irreversible”, defying international outcry and sanctions

North Korea launched a “ballistic missile of an unknown type” today, South Korea’s National Defense General Staff said, days after Pyongyang said it had “successfully” tested a “solid fuel” engine with “high thrust” that could potentially will allow her to develop more powerful weapons.

“North Korea launched two ballistic missiles of an unknown type in the direction of the East Sea, also known as the Sea of ​​Japan,” South Korea’s National Defense General Staff announced.

The missiles have already been shot down and are believed to have washed ashore outside Japan’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ), according to Japan’s coast guard.

Pyongyang has carried out an unprecedented number of missile tests in 2022 as it seeks to develop new strategic weapons and accelerate its programs to strengthen its missile and nuclear arsenals.

Among the weapons systems it tested was an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of hitting the continental US.

North Korea declares that its nuclear power status is “irreversible”, defying international outcry and sanctions.
