The reclusive state faced severe sanctions from the UN Security Council for a series of launches a year ago, in addition to two nuclear tests.

The launch was "a grave threat to our country's national security", the government's spokesman Yoshihide Suga told a news conference. -South Korea exercises are becoming something of a habit; previous year, North Korea launched six short-range missiles as the exercises began.

"These tests are sending a signal to the world and the the United States that they are prepared to defend themselves, that they're in a state of constant preparedness", said Petrov.

"It may look as if North Korea is responding to the ongoing S.K. -U.S. military exercise by firing missiles, but what North Korea really seems to be doing is attempting to discredit the legitimacy of our regular military exercise", Jeong said. He added that Japan had lodged "strong protests" with North Korea. "It is an extremely unsafe action", Abe told Japan's parliament. In August past year, North Korea fired a ballistic missile directly into Japan's EEZ for the first time, as part of a series of more than 20 missile launches it carried out in 2016.
