North Korea conducts new projectile launch – U.S. officials

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – North Korea has carried out a new projectile launch, U.S. officials said on Thursday, adding that initial information indicated it was similar to two other short-range missile tests by Pyongyang in the past eight days.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who has been hoping to revive denuclearisation talks with North Korea, played down the launches when asked about them at the White House, telling reporters he was not worried as they were short-range missiles and “very standard” and he was still open to negotiations.

South Korea’s military said unidentified short-range projectiles were fired at 2:59 a.m. and 3:23 a.m. local time on Friday, from North Korea’s South Hamgyong Province into the East Sea.

“We are monitoring the situation in case of additional launches and maintaining a readiness posture,” South Korea’s Yonhap news agency quoted the country’s joint chiefs of staff as saying.

A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said at least one projectile was detected that did not pose a threat to North America, although there could have been multiple projectiles.
