Japan Coast Guard says North Korea launched ballistic missile

North Korea launched a preliminary ballistic missile. The Japanese Coast Guard reported this on January 14.

“According to the Ministry of Defense, a ballistic missile was probably fired from North Korea. We urge ships and aircraft to follow current information; if fragments are found, do not approach them and report to the maritime security service,” the department said in a statement.

It is also noted that the launched rocket has probably already fallen. The Japanese military urged ships in the region not to approach the missile debris if it is discovered.

 In a key ruling party meeting in late December, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un vowed to expand his nuclear arsenal and launch additional spy satellites to cope with what he called US-led confrontational moves.


  1. The ballistic missile launched by North Korea on Sunday flew 500 km and reached a maximum altitude of 50 km, the Japanese Defense Ministry said in a statement.

  2. North Korea launched an intermediate-range ballistic missile on January 14, the Yonhap news agency reported, citing the South Korean military.

    "An estimated intermediate-range ballistic missile was launched from the Pyongyang area toward the Sea of Japan at about 2:55 p.m. (5:55 a.m. GMT) today," South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said. The news agency noted that this class includes missiles with a range of 3,000 to 5,500 kilometers. The South Korean side is exchanging information with the United States and Japan, maintaining combat readiness.
