NORTH Korea fired two unidentified projectiles from its coast early this morning as it resumed weapons testing.
The launches came two days after North Korea’s state media said leader Kim Jong Un supervised an artillery drill.
Chiefs of Staff in South Korea's capital Seoul confirmed the launches in a statement but couldn’t confirm how far the projectiles flew or whether the weapons were ballistic or rocket artillery.
The resumption of testing comes after Kim expressed deep frustration in December over deadlocked talks with the United States.
Kim also revealed he would unveil a new “strategic weapon” soon.
Nuclear diplomacy between North Korea and the U.S. has largely stalled since the breakdown of Kim’s second summit with Trump in February 2019 in Vietnam.
After the failed Hanoi summit, North Korea carried out a slew of short-range missile and other weapons tests.
Trump downplayed them saying there were short-range weapons that didn’t pose a direct threat to the U.S. mainland.
