The launch was immediately reported to President Moon Jae-in, who called a meeting of the National Security Council at 7.30am (6.30am Singapore time), the South Korean office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.

The projectile was likely a ballistic missile, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said, citing an unidentified source.

The projectile is likely to fall within Japan’s exclusive economic zone, Yonhap news reported citing an unidentified source in Japan as saying.

North Korea last test-fired a ballistic missile on May 21 towards the sea off its east coast and on Sunday said it had tested a new anti-aircraft weapon supervised by leader Kim Jong Un.
