North Korea launched two ballistic missiles in the early hours of Thursday. This was announced by the Japanese government, explaining that the test of ‘two unidentified bullets’ took place shortly after 7 am local time (midnight in Italy), and the missiles landed in the sea of Japan, just outside the exclusive economic zone of Tokyo. .
This is the first launch of this type of weapon by Pyongyang since the administration of US President Joe Biden took office. In the previous test carried out last weekend, in fact, no ballistic trajectory missiles were used.
The developments come a few days from the military exercises carried out in the US command in collaboration with South Korea and the visit of the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken together with the Minister of Defense, Lloyd Austin, first in Tokyo and then in Seoul, to strengthen relations with allied countries.
