Minutes ago, news has come in that two missiles of short-range were fired by North Korea off its cost Monday, March 1. A military official from South Korea has reportedly mentioned that the missile test by North Korea is to get its displeasure noted, about the scheduled military exercises between the United States and South Korea.

The next phase of the regular military exercises between the U.S. and South Korea is scheduled to start in a few hours from now. During every such drill, North Korea raises objections. It says that participating in this drill is South Korea’s deliberate warmongering tactic.

It has been reported that the missiles were successfully tested when they were fired towards the sea in the early morning of Monday, March 1. The missiles are said to have cruised close to 305 miles, before plunging into the sea. More information about the North Korean missile test is being gathered. However, not much can be said due to the secretive policies of the North.
