North Korea has conducted another missile test, South Korea’s military has said.
South Korea’s Office of Joint Chiefs of Staff, in a terse statement to media houses, noted that the projectile was launched toward the country on Sunday.
It stated that intelligence confirmed that the test was conducted from Pukchang, in the west of North Korea.
The test comes a week after North Korea tested another missile, described as a new type of rocket capable of carrying a large nuclear warhead.
Last Monday, the UN Security Council again demanded that Pyongyang conduct no further such tests and to “immediately show sincere commitment to denuclearization through concrete action”.
North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests and missiles capable of delivering weapons to their target.
