According to the US, North Korea fired multiple short-range missiles over the weekend as a part of “normal testing”.
North Korea fired 2 cruise missiles off its west coast on Sunday.
This is the first time North Korea fired missiles since US President Joe Biden took over the administration.
According to President Joe Biden, he does not consider North Korea’s launch of short-range missiles as a provocation. The defense officials called it “business as usual”.
This missile test came in the wake of joint military exercises by the armed forces of the US and South Korea.
Kim Yo-Jong the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un threatened to scrap a peace agreement with South Korea last week after the joint military exercises by the US and South Korea.
The nuclear nation (North Korea) is banned from testing ballistic missiles by UN resolutions and is facing tough international sanctions.
These sanctions are imposed as a result of its weapons program. This is hampering North Korea’s economic development.
