North Korea fired what appeared to be two short-range missiles on Thursday in a likely protest by leader Kim Jong Un at the United States after he and President Donald Trump failed to reach agreement on nuclear weapons and missiles at a February summit, South Korea said.

Axar.az reports citing Reuters.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who earlier cut short a European trip to return to Washington for meetings on Iran, would also have discussions on North Korea after learning of the launches, a senior U.S. State Department official said.

The launches came less than a week after Kim oversaw the test-firing of multiple rockets and a missile and coincided with

a visit to the South Korean capital by U.S. special envoy for North Korea, Stephen Biegun.

The two missiles fired on Thursday went in an easterly direction from the northwestern area of Kusong, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said.
