The Kyodo news agency reported, citing a government source, that the missile the DPRK launched earlier on Friday was an intercontinental ballistic missile.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Japanese government considers Friday’s North Korean missile test a clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said.

“This is a clear violation of the UN Security Council resolutions. Continued provocative actions are unacceptable. We declare a strong protest to North Korea, condemn [the launch] in the most severe term,” Suga told the NHK broadcaster.

He added that the missile fell in the Japanese exclusive economic zone after a 45-minute flight, longer than during the test launch earlier in July.
Earlier in the day, Japanese NHK reported that North Korea appears to have fired a missile which may have landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone. However, the broadcaster said that it could be just a projectile. The Kyodo news agency reported that the Japanese government was convening a national security council meeting in response to North Korea’s launch.

Later in the day, South Korean military confirmed the launch.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon said that it has detected what it considers to be a ballistic missile launch by the DPRK.
