S. Korea Says North Fired Presumed Artillery Shots

NORTH KOREA

North Korea fired artillery shots on Sunday, presumably from rocket launchers, Yonhap reports citing South Korea's military.

  • In a message to reporters, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said it detected "several trajectories" that appeared to be artillery shots, without giving any further details.
  • This comes as South Korean Defence Minister Lee vowed efforts to "normalise" security cooperation with Japan to address the threat posed by North Korea.
  • Meanwhile, South Korean Foreign Minister has touched down in Washington DC to meet with his U.S. counterpart for talks expected to focus on North Korean missile tests.
  • Speculation is rife that Pyongyang could hold a nuclear test soon. South Korea's defence chief told a security forum in Singapore that preparations for the drill are complete.
