North Korea fired two unidentified projectiles into the sea off its eastern coast on Friday morning, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said in a statement.
On Saturday, the regime fired what appeared to be two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea, the fifth round of launches in less than three weeks.
“Our military is monitoring the situation in case of additional launches while maintaining a readiness posture,” the JCS said in a brief release.
The US president, Donald Trump, said on Saturday that the North Korean ruler, Kim Jong-un, apologised to him for the flurry of recent short-range missile tests that has rattled US allies in the region and said they would stop when joint US-South Korea military exercises ended.
