BLOOMBERG: North Korea Test Fires Four Missiles Off Coast Over Weekend

North Korea fired four short-range missiles over the weekend as it showcased its military ambitions in defiance of international sanctions and diplomatic efforts to convince the totalitarian state to return to talks.
Kim Jong Un’s regime launched one short-range guided missile yesterday afternoon headed northeast into waters off its eastern coast, South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min Seok said by phone yesterday in Seoul. That followed the firing of three short-range projectiles on May 18. South Korea urged the North to stop provocations, Unification Ministry spokesman Kim Hyung Suk said in a briefing yesterday.
