The statement came after North Korea launched a missile “over Japan’s northern Hokkaido island into the sea early on Tuesday.” As Reuters reported, the launch prompted “warnings to residents [of Japan] to take cover.”
According to The Washington Post, North Korea has “sent rockets” over Japan at least twice before in 1998 and 2009.
