North Korea hits four ballistic missiles into sea on Monday. This act has angered the Japan and South Korea. This news came after few days when North Korea vowed to answer the military drills of South Korea and United States.
Although, South Korean Military expert indicates that, Missiles weren’t intercontinental ballistic missiles and only can travel to 1000 KM equivalent to 620 miles and hit the height of 260 km (160 miles) so, hence launched missiles weren’t ICBM and it could reach to United States.
Both States South Korea and Japan have recorded strong protest against North Korea. They declared it clear violation of resolution of Security Council and United Nations.
While addressing to parliament, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said, “The launches are clearly in violation of Security Council resolutions. It is an extremely dangerous action.”
On the other side, South Korean’s acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn termed it as a direct challenge to the international community and said Seoul would swiftly deploy a U.S. anti-missile defense system despite angry objections from China.
Whereas, another estimation says, North Korea hadn’t fired any missile and it sounds like a field exercise involving deployed missiles, probably ones have seen before.
