North Korea on Sunday, May 21 in the morning launched a new medium range ballistic missile into the Japan Sea in the course of U.S President, Donald Trump's first oversea trip to Saudi Arabia.

The latest missile test makes it their second missile test within time frame of seven days after launching their most successful missile test last week.

It was recorded that the missile flew about 500km… and it is believed to have dropped in waters off South Korea's east coast, according to the South Korea's military. Newly elected South Korean President, Moon Jae-In, in reaction to the missile launch, called emergency meeting of National Security Council.

This is the second launch test North Korea has had in Moon's short time in office as president. Meanwhile, the White House said the missile had "a shorter range than the missiles launched in North Korea's three most recent tests".

In a statement, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said they were at "full military readiness" and were "closely monitoring signs for additional provocation by the North Korean military". North Korean on Sunday through their state newspaper, Minju Joson, threatened more missile launches against the United States.

Minju Joson said: "If the US persists in confrontation with the DPRK (North Korea), the latter will show how the crime-woven history of the US is put to an end. "Many more weapons capable of striking the US will be launched from this land. This is the DPRK's answer to the Trump administration."
