TOKYO: The Japanese government will collect and analyze information on North Korea’s recent test of short-range cruise missiles, Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato said Wednesday.
Japan “will make full efforts to gather and analyze information and continue vigilance while closely cooperating with the United States and South Korea,” Kato told a press conference.
South Korean military sources said that North Korea fired two short-range cruise missiles off its west coast on Sunday.
North Korea’s test did not violate UN Security Council resolutions that ban ballistic missile launches, a senior US official said.
Tokyo has not made a protest to Pyongyang, according to Kato.
