US Remains Vigilant as North Korea Launches Ballistic Missile

North Korea fired a ballistic missile from a site near the country’s Kusong city over the weekend, according to the U.S. Strategic Command.

Stratcom said Saturday its systems tracked North Korea’s medium- or intermediate-range missile at 5:55 p.m. Eastern time that headed to the Sea of Japan.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command found that the country’s latest missile launch effort did not pose a threat to the continent.

Stratcom vowed to stay vigilant and collaborate with NORAD, the U.S. Northern Command, the U.S. Pacific Command, South Korea and Japan to maintain regional security amid the North Korean provocation.
