The South Korean Military expressed worry about the unlawful behavior of North Korea. The South Korean military said that North Korea fired a ballistic missile in the sea on Tuesday in a series of nuclear tests carried in the capital over the recent weeks.

The Statement from the Seoul Joint Chief of Staff said that “The unidentified ballistic missile was fired from naval shipyard Sinpo into the sea, East of the peninsula. Our military is closely monitoring the situation and maintaining readiness posture in close cooperation with the United States to prepare for any possible additional launches,”
North Korea recently tested a long-range cruise missile, a train-launched weapon, and a hypersonic missile from Pyongyang and has been developing a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) to be carried out underwater. The move came after South Korea tested its 1st SLBM last month.

The U.S. special representative to North Korea, Sung Kim, said, “We will seek diplomacy with North Korea to make tangible progress that increases the security of the United States and our allies.”

South Korean Presidential office will convene a National Security Council meeting following the launch. Meanwhile, representatives from 100 International companies and military forces gathered in Seoul for the opening ceremony of the International Aerospace and Defence Exhibition.

To be held this week, it will be South Korea’s largest defense expo that will showcase next-generation fighter aircraft, helicopters, drones, space rockets, and other civilian aerospace designs, among other advanced weapons.
The UN considers ballistic missiles to be more threatening than cruise missiles because they can carry more powerful payloads, have a longer range, and can fly faster.

South Korean media reported that this particular missile was believed to have traveled about 450km (280 miles) at a maximum height of 60km.

It is unclear if the missile was launched from a submarine or an underwater platform. Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said two ballistic missiles had been fired, calling the launches “very regrettable”.
