North Korea has conducted a training launch of ballistic missiles by simulating a response to the US military having deployed military forces at airports and ports in South Korea, Reuters reports referring to the Central News Agency of the DPRK.
The operation was supervised by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. According to him, the simulated detonation of nuclear warheads mounted on missiles has been successfully tested.
Earlier on, the South Korean Yonhap agency announced the launch of three ballistic missiles from the territory of North Korea citing the report by the country's Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee.
The missiles were launched from the east coast of North Korea, Reuters reports quoting a statement by the army. According to the military, their range would be enough to launch a strike on South Korea.
On July 8 this year, the US and South Korea agreed the deployment of a missile defense system on the Korean Peninsula to counter threats from North Korea.
The Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) anti-missile system intercepts ballistic missiles at high altitudes.
In turn, Pyongyang had threatened a "physical response".
