SEOUL—North Korea defended on Wednesday its recent missile firings as “ordinary military practice,” as South Korea said Tuesday’s volley passed above a Chinese passenger jet’s route just minutes ahead of the airliner.
In its first public comment on the launches, North Korea’s state media said the missiles’ accuracy ensured they wouldn’t affect neighboring countries. The firings began on Feb. 21 and ended on Tuesday, state media said.
Thank you M, Richard, Fjordman, DP111 and all. More to come.
