About this reported в Associated Press.
The AP noted: South Korea’s armed forces recorded the launch of two North Korean ballistic missiles from the northwestern Tonchangri area.
“The missiles flew across the country in the direction of its eastern waters,” South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.
The missiles are known to have been fired about 50 minutes apart, but no details have been released, such as what type of weapon North Korea fired and how far they flew.
Japan’s Deputy Defense Minister Toshiro Ino informed reporters that both missiles flew at a distance of 500 kilometers at a maximum altitude of 550 kilometers. He criticized North Korea for threatening the security of Japan, the region and the international community.
The NHK publication, in turn, wrotethat North Korea is launching missiles with an unprecedented frequency this year: Japanese officials say this launch is the 35th in 2022.
- It will be recalled that on December 2, it was reported that the administration of Joe Biden announced the introduction of sanctions against three North Korean officials in response to Pyongyang conducting dozens of ballistic missile tests in 2022, including an intercontinental ballistic missile.
