North Korea tests short-range ballistic missile on Friday in the sea. It was the fifth test in the past few weeks. According to South Korean military forces, this was a short-range ballistic missile. If it’s confirmed by the North Korean government, such test is the breach of 11 UN security council resolutions.
According to the media reports, the missile was fired from near the eastern city of Hamhung in South Hamgyong Province and landed in the Sea of Japan to the east of the Korean peninsula. The tests were conducted at 05:34 and 05:50 (20:34 and 20:50 GMT Friday), they flew a distance of around 400 km (250 miles), at an altitude of about 48 km with a maximum speed of more than Mach 6.1, a South Korean military statement said. North Korea has tested a series of missiles and rockets since President Trump and Mr. Kim agreed during a meeting in June to restart denuclearisation negotiations.
