For the second time in a week, North Korea has fired off two short range ballistic missiles.
U.S. officials say North Korea fired off the two missiles overnight.
South Korea’s president says this may be an attempt to push forward denuclearization talks with the U.S.
In a statement released shortly after the launch, South Korea’s joint chiefs of staff said that the estimated range of each projectile was between about 165 miles and 260 miles.
They were launched 20 minutes apart from the North Western region of North Korea.
Both landing in the Sea of Japan.
The move adds yet another complication into the stalled negotiations with the United States and peace talks with South Korea.
Today’s firing comes less than a week after Pyongyang tested several new weapons systems, the first confirmed launches of their kind since 2017.
