United States has raised a red flag over North Korea’s firing of ballistic missiles terming the missile launch as ‘provocative.
North Korea has test-fired two ballistic missiles into the sea, off its east coast. The missiles launch is the latest in a series of rocket launches.
According to U.S. officials, North Korea launched medium-range missiles off the east coast, flew about 800 kilometers (500 miles) before falling the sea.
The launch come few days after the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un, ordered more nuclear warhead and missile tests.
Shortly after the launch, U.S. called for Pyongyang to avoid from raising tensions.
U.S. President Barack Obama has imposed new sanctions to North Korea, following its ‘illicit’ nuclear test and satellite launch.
Obama’s executive order freezes North Korean government property in the United States, bans U.S. exports to – or investment in – North Korea and also greatly expands powers to bar anyone, including non-Americans doing business with North Korea.
U.S. and South Korea are holding their biggest annual military drills this month and North Korea is angry over US military exercises in South Korea.
Consequently, this year North Korea threatened to launch which it termed a "pre-emptive nuclear strike of justice" against the U.S. and South Korea.
