North Korea launched two short-range ballistic missiles, according to reports from South Korea, the second time in less than a week that North Korea has tested weapons, in a move that South Koreans say is counterproductive to easing tensions on the peninsula. The U.S. and South Korea are preparing for joint war games next month—a possible motivation for the tests. Meanwhile, the U.S. says it is hoping that more denuclearization talks with North Korea will take place soon, following Trump’s vow to resume negotiations during his trip to meet with Kim Jong-un at the Demilitarized Zone last month.
