North Korea fired what is believed to be a ballistic missile towards the Sea of Japan on Monday, TASS reports.
This is evidenced by data from the Japanese Coast Guard.
It is noted that the rocket fell into the sea. Agency officials warn fishing boats in the area of possible danger, as well as that they do not approach rocket debris if they are found.
Note that this is the fourth rocket launch carried out by the DPRK since the beginning of this year.
The United States has previously proposed to the UN that new sanctions be imposed on North Korea in response to ballistic missile launches in recent months.
