Sputnik News – July 4, 2017

North Korea has reportedly launched a ballistic missile Tuesday morning, just days after the South’s new President Moon Jae-In and US President Donald Trump focused on deescalation of tensions on the Korean peninsula in their first summit.

The regime has test-fired another ballistic missile in violation of the international law, according to the South Korean military.

“North Korea fired an unidentified ballistic missile into the East Sea from the vicinity of Banghyon, North Pyongan Province, at around 9:40am,” South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said, as reported by RT.

According to Yoshihide Suga,  the Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary, the missile fell into the country’s exclusive economic zone.
