North Korean missile falls down outside Japan’s exclusive economic zone
North Korea’s ballistic missile has fallen down in the Sea of
Japan outside Japan’s exclusive economic zone about one hour after
the launch, Japanese Defense Minister Yasukazu Hamada said on
reports citing TASS.
“According to our estimates, the missile fell down some 550
kilometers from the southern party of the Korean Peninsula and some
250 kilometers from Hokkaido,” he said.
According to the Japanese defense ministry, the missile was
launched along a steep trajectory.
Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida ordered ministries and
agencies concerned to ensure safe navigation and air service in the
area and be prepared for any unpredictable situation following
North Korea’s missile launch.
An emergencies headquarters has been set up to collect
information about the launch.
This was the eighth North Korea’s missile test launch since the
beginning of the year.
