North Korea shoots another missile

Reading Time: < 1 minute

North Korea has fired another short-range missile twice, in the country’s third weapons test in just over a week.

The launches happened in an area on the country’s eastern coast early on Friday.

They are considered a reaction to planned military exercises between South Korea and the US due this month.

Meanwhile, the UK, France and Germany have called on North Korea to engage in “meaningful” talks with the US.

After a closed-door meeting at the UN Security Council, the countries said international sanctions need to be fully enforced until Pyongyang had dismantled its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes.
