Pyongyang, August 26: The moment world starts to think North Korea tension has declined, the tension starts mounting in next second. Again report comes of North Korea firing several short-range missiles into the sea off its east coast early on Saturday. The move comes during the joint annual military exercise of South Korea and USA.

As per the South Korean military statement, missiles blasted off from a coastal launching site and flew about 155 miles to the northeast before falling into the sea. The types of missiles were described as unidentified. Cheong Wa Dae, the South Korean presidential office, convened a National Security Council (NSC) meeting.

The firing has been viewed as a provocative act against South Korea-USA allies. But South Korea has announced this cannot come as an obstacle and they will proceed more thoroughly" with the ongoing UFG drills. The U.S. Pacific Command has revised its assessment of the latest North Korean missile launches. Japan’s chief cabinet secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters the missiles early Saturday did not fall into Japan's territorial waters or the coastal 200-mile economic zone.

This move from North Korea has proved all the optimism futile. In the earlier part of this week, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, "I am pleased to see that the regime in Pyongyang has certainly demonstrated some level of restraint that we've not seen in the past." Even US President Donald Trump told about North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that "I respect the fact that he is starting to respect us."
