North Korea has fired an unidentified projectile from areas near Pukchang in North Korea, according to a press release by South Korean military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.
No further details were immediately available.
This is the second projectile launched by the nation in the last week.
The North Koreans fired a ballistic missile May 14 that landed in water 60 miles south of Russia’s Vladivostok region.
It was the first provocative move from North Korea since South Korean President Moon Jae-in took office on May 10. Moon has advocated for engagement with North Korea to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula.
The launch on May 14 came as Chinese leader Xi Jinping and multiple world leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, attended a major trade and infrastructure summit in Beijing.
