UN strongly condemns North Korea's latest missile launch

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson released a terse statement following Tuesday's test, saying, "North Korea launched yet another intermediate range ballistic missile". Most of North Korea's missiles use liquid propellant, which usually must be added on the launch pad before the weapon is fired.

Sinpo is home to a North Korean submarine base.

On Wednesday, North Korea launched a projectile about 60 kilometers into the Sea of Japan.

North Korean state media said the "Pukguksong-2" missile is a surface-to-surface missile that can carry nuclear warheads. However, this missile flew only a short distance.

The exercise is scheduled to take place just south of the Inter Korean border at an army training field in Pocheon on 13, 21 and 26 April, Yonhap news agency reported. And China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won't.

The testing of nuclear weapons by North Korea is expected to figure prominently in talks between the Trump and Jinping during their meeting, the official said on condition of anonymity.

"I've joked before that they don't mind being hated, but they definitely hate to be ignored", Ralph Cossa, president of the Pacific Forum CSIS think tank in Honolulu, said after Wednesday's launch. Senator Deb Fischer is on the Senate Armed Services Committee and says even though they are called test fires there is a big cause of concern.

The European Union on Thursday imposed additional sanctions on North Korea over nuclear and ballistic missile tests which it said threatened worldwide security.

Citing an unnamed source from the U.S. Department of Defense, AP wrote that the "rocket spun out of control and plunged into the ocean in a fiery crash".

Despite angry opposition from Beijing, the United States started to deploy the first elements of its advanced anti-missile defense system in South Korea last month. North Korea's nuclear prowess has certainly upped significantly over the past few years.

European lawmakers on Thursday expanded economic and technological sanctions against North Korea, following a week of land and sea missile tests by the secretive regime. -South Korea military drills, which the North sees as a preparation for war.

South Korea's military recently test-launched a 500-mile range cruise missile that can potentially strike all areas of North Korea, according to South Korean media.

North Korea attempted to launch a ballistic missile two weeks ago from its east coast and earlier in March fired four missiles towards Japan, some of which came as close as 300 km (190 miles) to its coast.
