North Korea Fires Two Short-Range Ballistic Missiles
SEOUL - North Korea has fired two short-range ballistic missiles from the location of the Tongchon, Kangwon province, according to the South Korean military. The US Indo-Pacific Command put out a statement saying that they are aware of the missile launches, and that they do not pose a threat to the US, its personnel or territory.
The South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff put out a statement that it detected the launches from the Tongchon area in Kangwon Province between 11:59 a.m. and 12:18 p.m. It also reported that the missiles flew around 230 kilometers (142 miles) at apogees of about 24 kilometers (15 miles) and reached a top speed of Mach 5.
The statement by the JCS said, "The North's ballistic missile launches this time are acts of significant provocation that undermine peace and stability not only on the Korean Peninsula but also in the international community."
"While tracking and monitoring related movements in close cooperation with the United States in preparation against additional North Korean provocations, our military will maintain a firm readiness posture."
US Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM): "We are aware of the ballistic missile launches and are consulting closely with our allies and partners. While we have assessed that this event does not pose an immediate threat to U.S. personnel or territory, or to our allies, the missile launches highlight the destabilizing impact of the DPRK’s unlawful WMD and ballistic missile programs. The U.S. commitments to the defense of the Republic of Korea and Japan remain ironclad."
