North Korea has fired two short range ballistic missiles to the ocean, the military of South Korea has said.
It said the missiles, launched off the east shore, flew some 500km (310 miles) and fell to the water.
Soon following the launching, Pyongyang declared it “nullifies” all inter-Korean cooperative endeavors and can liquidate South Korean assets in the united states.
South Korean assets in the North have been in the Kaesong industrial zone.
South Korea pulled out of the jointly-managed industrial zone after North Korea’s latest long range missile launching of a satellite. On Wednesday, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un additionally maintained nuclear warheads small enough to fit on ballistic missiles had been developed by scientists.
Yet, South Korea’s defence ministry said it believed the North had “not yet procured miniaturised nuclear warheads”.The claim is essential, as without miniaturisation Pyongyang cannot place its nuclear weapons on missiles – an ability many analysts believe could still be several years away.
