North Korea Launches Four Anti-Ship Missiles

But the USA has said it is willing to enter into talks only if the North halts its missile and nuclear tests.

Analysts say each launch, successful or not, improves missile technology and ultimately provides information that helps bring North Korea closer to its goal of building a missile that could reach the US.

There has been no comment from North Korea, or reports in its state media, about the latest cases.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in met with the National Security Council Thursday afternoon and urged vigilance against additional tests.

"This new-type cruise rocket is a powerful attack means capable of striking any enemy group of battleships attempting a military attack on the DPRK", the KCNA statement reads.

Pyongyang launched several land-to-sea missiles early Thursday, under the supervision of leader Kim Jong Un, KCNA said. It also could raise concerns about United States efforts to present a tough, unified position with Japan and South Korea against the North.

The president held his first plenary session of the national security council, and said his government would not make any compromise in defending national security and people's safety. "The only things North Korea can gain from these provocations are economic isolation and economic difficulties. It will pose a considerable threat to United States and South Korean navies", he said.
