North Korea fires missile into sea ahead of Trump-Xi summit

mrpops09_CMOD_mrpops09_CMOD_ Chief Moderator

North Korea fired a ballistic missile on Wednesday from its east coast into the sea off the Peninsula, South Korea's military said, ahead of a summit between U.S. and Chinese leaders who are set to discuss Pyongyang's arms program.

The launch was from Sinpo, a port city on the North's east coast, and the missile flew about 60 km (40 miles), South Korea's Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a short statement. Sinpo is the site of a North Korean submarine base. 

The launch comes just a day before the start of a summit meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and China's President Xi Jinping, where talks about adding pressure on the North to drop its arms development will take center stage.

Any launch of objects using the ballistic missile technology is a violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions but the North has defied the ban as infringement of its sovereign rights to self defense and the pursuit of space exploration.

    An inexperienced leader doing everything to goad an inexperienced leader into a military confrontation. What could possibly go wrong here?

    The launch comes days after Donald Trump warned the US was ready to take action to tackle Pyongyang's aggression.

    North Korea has carried out its latest missile launch ahead of a US-China meeting where Kim Jong-Un's aggression is expected to be high on the agenda.

    South Korea said a ballistic missile was fired from the eastern coastal town of Sinpo at 6.42am local time and flew for about 37 miles (60km) before landing in the Sea of Japan.

    The launch came as South Korean and US troops were conducting annual military drills, which the North views as an invasion rehearsal.

    The US military's Pacific Command said initial assessments suggest the KN-15 medium-range ballistic missile was fired from a land-based facility rather than a submarine.

    South Korea's defence ministry said: "The military is keeping a close watch over North Korea's provocative moves and maintaining a high defence posture."
