Japan's Self Defense Forces said the suspected missile did not land in Japanese territory or within its Exclusive Economic Zone and its Coast Guard warned shipping not to approach any fallen debris.

North Korea Saturday fired two "unidentified projectiles" into the sea off its eastern coast, South Korea's military said, the latest in a series of launches by Pyongyang. The exact time of the launches was not immediately clear, but the first launch was reported just after 7 a.m. local time.

It said South Korea's military is monitoring possible additional launches by North Korea, but gave no further details such as exactly what type of projectiles North Korea launched. -South Korean military drills.

South Korea's presidential office said it'll hold an unscheduled meeting to discuss the North Korean launches.

An AFP reporter said Palestinians clashed there with Israeli soldiers, but no casualties were reported. Gaza terrorists have also launched six missiles at Israel in the past week.

"He is truly impudent enough to utter such thoughtless words which only leave us disappointed and sceptical as to whether we can solve any problem with such a guy", said North Korea's foreign minister, Ri Yong-hoRi, in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency.

Ri's blistering rhetoric and the projectile launches may dim the prospect for an early resumption of nuclear negotiations between the countries. The top US envoy on North Korea, Stephen Biegun, said Wednesday that Washington was ready to restart the talks, a day after the U.S.

Ri added: "If the USA still dreams a pipe dream of gaining everything through sanctions, we are left with two options, either to leave it enjoying the dream to its heart's content or to wake it up from the dream". -South Korean military drills had focused on South Korea, not the United States. North Korea typically fires long-range missiles into high altitudes to avoid reaching other countries.

Nuclear talks between Pyongyang and Washington have been gridlocked since a second summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump in Hanoi in February collapsed without an agreement over the extent of denuclearisation in the North and sanctions relief.
