Fox News reports that North Korea just fired a missile into the Sea of Japan just after a United States aircraft carrier arrived in the region.
The missile fire also comes just before Vice President Kamala Harris's trip to the region.
More information about the missile was provided by South Korea's military. Reuters reports:
The United States similarly stated:
While we have assessed that this event does not pose an immediate threat to U.S. personnel or territory, or to our allies, the missile launch highlights the destabilizing impact of the DPRK’s unlawful WMD and ballistic missile programs. The U.S. commitments to the defense of the Republic of Korea and Japan remain ironclad.
Vice President Harris is scheduled to visit the region next week to discuss the security of Taiwan. The vice president is scheduled to make stops in both Japan and South Korea.
