North Korea: Two cruise missiles launched from Onchon
North Korea reportedly launched two cruise missiles from its western village of Onchon this week. This launch comes amidst the preliminary joint drills that South Korea and the United States are holding.
Reuters reports North Korea launched two cruise missiles from the west coast town of Onchon Wednesday, according to a South Korean military source.
The source also said that the military authorities of South Korea and the US are still looking into the details of the launch, including the range of the missiles.
The launches by Pyongyang come a day after Seoul and Washington began their four days of preliminary joint military drills. The preliminary drills are in preparation for the long-suspended live field training in Ulchi Freedom Shield from August 22 to September 1.
This also follows the announcement made by the Pentagon Tuesday that the US, South Korea, and Japan held a ballistic missile defense exercise on Hawaii’s coast last week. This would be the first of such drills since 2017 amidst strained relations between South Korea and Japan.

Yoon made the remarks at a news conference to mark his first 100 days as president but did not mention the recent launches.
Yoon reiterated the preparedness to provide economic aid to North Korea should it move towards denuclearization. Yoon added that he had called for dialogue with Pyongyang since his campaign.
“Any dialogue between the leaders of the South and North, or negotiations between working-level officials, should not be a political show, but should contribute to establishing substantive peace on the Korean peninsula and in Northeast Asia,” said Yoon.
