North Korea greets its neighbors with a 4th of July missile launch
As President Trump and his South Korean counterpart, President Moon Jae-in continue to seek a way to force North Korea to the negotiating table, North Korea has launched its 11th ballistic missile so far this year. Under persistently ignored United Nations Security Council resolutions, North Korea is barred from conducting such tests.
The South Korean military said the missile took off from Panghyon in the northwestern town of Kusong, landing in the sea between North Korea and Japan.
There was no immediate word on what type of missile was tested.
It was the first missile test by the North since it launched land-to-sea cruise missiles off its east coast on June 8.
