North Korea fires ballistic missiles, South Korean military says

North Korea fired a ballistic missile towards the sea off its east coast, the South Korean military said on Friday.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff did not immediately provide details about the projectile or its trajectory.

North Korea has launched a series of ballistic and cruise missiles, as well as tactical missiles, in recent months, describing them as part of a program to improve its defensive capabilities.

Earlier on Friday, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s powerful sister said its tactical missiles were intended solely as a deterrent to South Korean military aggression, while denying that Pyongyang was exporting the weapons.

The rocket launch coincides with a visit by Russian President Vladimir Putin to the Chinese northeastern city of Harbin.
