WASHINGTON: The United States confirmed Sunday that North Korea has test-launched another ballistic missile.
The US Pacific Command said the short-range missile, launched from near Wonsan Airfield, was tracked for six minutes until it landed in the Sea of Japan.
It was not deemed a threat to North America. The command said it was working on a more detailed assessment of the missile launch.
“We continue to monitor North Korea´s actions closely,” PACOM said in a statement.
“US Pacific Command stands behind our ironclad commitment to the security of our allies in the Republic of Korea and Japan,” it added.
