North Korea fired two short-range missiles into the sea early Thursday, marking the first missile test since the country agreed to resume talks with the United States. The two missiles were fired near the coastal city of Wonsan and flew about 267 miles and 428 miles, respectively, before landing in the East Sea, also known as the Sea of Japan, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement. “Our military is closely monitoring the situation in case of additional launches and maintaining a readiness posture,” the statement said.
