US condemns North Korea’s ‘destabilizing’ missile tests | DW News

DW News published this video item, entitled “US condemns North Korea’s ‘destabilizing’ missile tests | DW News” – below is their description.

South Korea’s Joint Chief of Staff said early on Wednesday that North Korea fired three missiles toward waters off North Korea’s eastern coast, one after another, between 6 and 7 a.m. local time.

Japan’s Coast Guard also reported at least two projectiles believed to be ballistic missiles falling into the sea.

South Korea’s military said the projectiles hailed from the Sunan area in Pyongyang.

North Korea has been testing weapons at an unprecedented pace in 2022, including the country’s first demonstration of an intercontinental ballistic missile in March. Wednesday’s apparent tests would be the 17th of the year.

UN resolutions prohibit North Korea from testing missiles capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

The launch comes soon after US President Joe Biden’s five-day tour of the region, starting in South Korea and moving on to Japan, which concluded with Tuesday’s Quad meeting with the leaders of Japan, India and Australia.
