North Korea Successfully Test Fired Two Short Range Ballistic Missiles

North Korea successfully test-fired two short-range missiles from its eastern coastal city of Wonsan on 25 July. The missiles flew about 430 km and reached an altitude of 50 km.

The ballistic missile is a short-range, of about 1,000 kilometers or less. It will be used only in the short distances between some countries and the missiles are low cost.

North Korea tested its last weapons on 9 May which included short-range missiles and also smaller rockets.

Doubts:

The firing of ballistic missiles has created new doubts on efforts to restart denuclearisation talks after Trump and Kim met at the demilitarized zone (DMZ) at the end of June.
