North Korea fired two more missiles as U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris wraps up a trip to Japan and heads to South Korea, Reuters reported Wednesday.
Harris touched down in Japan to attend the funeral of former prime minister Shinzo Abe on Monday and is set to visit the heavily fortified Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea Thursday, according to Reuters. The launches follow an earlier test Sunday, where a short-range ballistic missile flew across South Korea into the Sea of Japan, one day prior to South Korea and U.S. militaries’ Monday off-coast joint operation.
“North Korea’s provocations will further strengthen the South Korean-U.S. deterrence and response capability, and only deepen North Korea’s isolation from the international community,” South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said, according to Reuters.

South Korea’s national security council convened an emergency meeting after Wednesday’s launches promised to make good on a policy of “overwhelming” defenses against the north, Reuters reported.
The launches do not “pose an immediate threat to U.S. personnel or territory, or to our allies,” the U.S. military’s Indo-Pacific Command said in a statement, condemning the “destabilizing” effect of North Korea’s sanctioned ballistic missile and nuclear weapons programs.
