N. Korea fires projectiles after U.S. talks offer

North Korea fired a new round of short-range projectiles on Tuesday (August 10), South Korean officials said, only hours after it signaled a new willingness to resume stalled denuclearisation talks with the United States.

N. Korea fires projectiles after U.S. talks offer

Only hours after North Korea said it wanted to restart U.S. talks, the country fired off two new projectiles on Tuesday (September 10).

The launches were detected by South Korean military.

They appeared to be two short-range projectiles fired towards the east.

South Korean authorities said they're close monitoring the situation.

(SOUNDBITE) (Korean) SOUTH KOREA'S CHIEF OF PUBLIC AFFAIRS IN JOINT CHIEF OF STAFF, KIM JOON-RAK, SAYING: "The maximum flying distance of these projectiles has been detected at around 330 km and South Korean and the U.S. intelligence authorities are analyzing further details." This marks the eighth launch since President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un met at the Korean border in June.

Both sides agreed to restart negations.

However, U.S. officials have said attempters to resume talks have gone unanswered.

Meanwhile the missile tests have kept coming.

Some analysts have told Reuters they see it as a case of Kim returning to missile diplomacy.

North Korea's Vice Minister said in state media that the North was willing to resume 'comprehensive' discussions with the U.S. in late September.

However he warned those talks could fall apart unless Washington takes a fresh approach.

Meanwhile the state department said they had no new talks to announce.

While the missiles Pyongyang's launched this year were all short-range, analysts warn that many of them are a new variety designed to evade interception by the U.S. missile defense system.
