Guam civil defense officials monitored yet another missile test by North Korea Friday morning and like all the other recent launches, this one posed no threat to our region, according to a statement from Guam Homeland Security and the Office of Civil Defense.
This was the sixth in a series of test launches by the North since July 25th.
Reuters cites a report from South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff which said two projectiles were launched from North Korea’s east coast Kangwon Province, the same area where the previous 5 launches originated.
This latest test comes on the same day that the North announced that it will “never” enter into reunification talks with Seoul.
On Thursday South Korean President Moon Jae-in announced his goal to reunify the two Koreas by 2045 and he invited Pyongyang to enter into a dialogue to reach that goal.
Friday a North Korean spokesman rejected the offer and condemned the ongoing joint U.S.-South Korea drills that began last week calling them a “rehearsal for war.”
