North Korea launched 4 missiles from its border with China. According to a South Korean report, the missiles were launched at a range of at least a thousand kilometers and landed off the shores of North Korea. The US military stated that they identified the launch immediately and they clarified that even though the missiles were launched quite a distance, there is still no evidence that they are intercontinental missiles.     

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe stated that his country identified 4 missiles that were launched from North Korea and that 3 of them landed inside his country’s territorial waters. Shortly after the launch became known, Abe condemned it and stated in a conversation with reporters outside his official residence that it showed that North Korea poses a new threat.
