South Korea's President Moon says North Korea's missile launch was a protest after failed Trump summit

10 May 2019

South Korea's President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday that North Korea's latest missile launch was probably a subdued protest against the United States after a failed summit of the two countries' leaders in Hanoi in February.

North Korea fired what appeared to be two short-range missiles on Thursday, according to South Korea's military, days after its leader Kim Jong Un oversaw the test of multiple rockets and a missile. Moon also said even if the missiles were short-range, they could still violate U.N. resolutions barring North Korea from developing ballistic missiles.
