North Korea fires intermediate-range Ballistic Missile Over Japan

North Korea tested an intermediate-range ballistic missile over Japan on Tuesday, October 4, 2022. According to NPR, The Japanese prime minister’s office stated that at least 4,000 kilometers ranged missile was fired from North Korea over Japan and landed in the Pacific Ocean. Japanese PM Fumio Kishida expressed his anger toward North Korea to condemn the reckless act, and he will convene the National Security Council to discuss the situation.

Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno said there has been no immediate damage after the missile landed in the waters outside of the exclusive economic zone. This test would be the response to the bilateral military drills between South Korea and the United States and its allies, especially Japan’s evolving on this drill last week.

North Korea has tested 40 different missiles in the 20 different launch events in 2022 and Kim Jung Un has expressed to expand his nuclear arsenal and refuses against the United State’s nuclear diplomacy. South Korean president Yoon said he called a National Security Council meeting to discuss this issue.
