N. Korea launches ICBM ahead of S. Korea-Japan meeting

South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said on Thursday that North Korea fired an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) into the Sea of Japan (East Sea). Japan's Defense Ministry said the missile landed outside of its Exclusive Economic Zone.

The launch is believed to be a reaction to the planned meeting between South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, which will take place later in the day. North Korea fired other missiles earlier this week as the United States and South Korea held military drills.
