North Korea reportedly fired a ballistic missile toward the Sea of Japan, the Japanese government announced, according to NHK News.
The test-firing took place Saturday morning, and it would be the 18th missile test of the year, based on an earlier assessment from foreign policy expert Samuel Ramani, just hours before this one happened.
North Korea launched 17 missile tests this year. Now it chairs the UN disarmament body.

The South Korean military also confirms that the firing of the “unidentified” missile occurred, Yonhap reported.
North Korea continues to do these tests to stroke fear among their adversaries in the region.
