N Korea at crossroads

North Korea fires two unidentified projectiles

Launches headed to sea in the east, Yonhap reports

SEOUL (Reuters) -- North Korea fired two unidentified projectiles from South Hwanghae province into the sea to the east early on Tuesday, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said, as North Korea's foreign ministry protested joint U.S.-South Korea military drills as violations of diplomatic agreements.

Criticizing the allies' joint drills and adoption of high-tech weapons, North Korea has fired a series of missiles and rockets since leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump agreed at a June 30 meeting to revive stalled denuclearization talks.
