İrem GÖL- TDO- According to the statement of South Korean military, North Korea fired two projectiles that appeared to be short-range ballistic missiled into the sea off the east coast of the Korean peninsula. Japanese coast guard also reported that North Korea appeared to have fired a missile, which landed outside Japan’s exclusive economic area. The suspected missiles were fired from North Pyongyang province. This is the third time that North Korea fired missiles, drawing US and Chinese appeal for Pyongyang to return to talks on ending its nuclear and missile programmes.
Also, North Korea announced that it would hold in April a session of the Supreme People’s Assembly, which would gather around 700 people , disregarding the corona outbreak. North Korea has not reported any confirmed cases of the Covid-19 yet but there are doubts about the reliability of the information is highly questionable as a top US military official said last week he is “fairly certain” there were infections in North Korea.
