The Blue House says it believes North Korea's launches this morning are an armed demonstration against the joint South Korea-U.S. Combined Command Post Training exercises.
According to Blue House Spokesperson Ko Min-jung, an emergency video conference was held this morning, involving the heads of the national security office, defense ministry, and intelligence agency.
They urged North Korea to suspend its tests that could escalate military tensions on the peninsula.
And viewing the projectiles as short-range ballistic missiles, the officials agreed to thoroughly assess the details under close coordination with the U.S.
