Fourth rocket test in North Korea inside one month
North Korea launched two ballistic missiles towards the Japanese Sea. South Korea criticized the tests in the face of the coronavirus crisis. North Korea has conducted a rocket test on the open sea for the fourth time this month. The General Staff of the neighbouring country, South Korea, announced that two missiles, which were probably again two short-range ballistic missiles, had been launched from the port city of Wŏnsan on the east coast of North Korea. The two projects had flown about 230 kilometres. North Korea itself has not yet stated the renewed missile test.
In view of the coronavirus pandemic, the highest command authority in South Korea criticized the behaviour of the isolated neighbouring state. “In a situation where the whole world is having trouble over Covid-19, this military action by North Korea is highly inappropriate,” said the General Staff. The country must immediately stop testing.
