North Korea's recent ballistic missile launchings could negatively affect the establishment of peace on the Korean Peninsula, South Korea's Ministry of Unification said on Friday. The Ministry of Unification deputy spokesperson, Kim Eun-han, expressed 'deep regret' at North Korea's recent actions during a news briefing held on Friday morning.

He also added that South Korea will keep a close eye on the relevant movements and prepare thoroughly. South Korea's military said unidentified short-range projectiles were fired at 2:59 a.m. and 3:23 a.m. local time on Friday from North Korea's South Hamgyong Province into the East Sea, following the launching of two short-range ballistic missiles early on July 30 as well as July 25.
