Japan Defense Ministry: N Korean Ballistic Missile Tests Pose Threat to World
By Peter Landers
TOKYO--Japan's Defense Ministry said projectiles fired by North
Korea Wednesday may be ballistic missiles and that they pose a
threat to regional security.
"North Korea's repeated firing of ballistic and other missiles
poses a grave problem for our nation and the entire international
community," the ministry said.
It said the projectiles didn't enter Japanese territory and
weren't believed to have landed inside the nation's exclusive
economic zone. The ministry said it was continuing to gather
information about the projectiles.
