N. Korea launches missile after it agrees to talk

North Korea launched at least one projectile Wednesday (October 2) only a day after announcing talks with the U.S. That dialogue had been stalled for months and is set to start back up this weekend.

However on Wednesday both Japan and South Korea's military confirmed a new launch.

Seoul says it may have been launched from a submarine... Tokyo's Coast Guard said it appeared to be a missile and urged vessels to be wary of any debris.

And Japan government spokesman Yoshihide Suga said it appeared two missiles flew in the morning.

(SOUNDBITE) (Japanese) JAPANESE CHIEF CABINET SECRETARY, YOSHIHIDE SUGA, SAYING: "The first fell at 7:17 a.m.

Local time outside Japan's Exclusive Economic Zone, and another fell ten minutes later within our waters off the western prefecture of Shimane.

At this point, we haven't seen any damage to airplanes or ships." This marks the ninth launch since U.S. President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un met in June at the DMZ between the two Koreas.

However, its been a stalemate for months over new talks to end the North's nuclear program since February, when a summit in Hanoi ended without a deal.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, ON POSSIBLE THIRD SUMMIT WITH NORTH KOREA, SAYING: "And the relationships have been very good.

So we'll see what happens." Trump has brushed off North Korea's recent short-range launches.

In September he said the two sides didn't have an agreement on short range missiles and that many countries test such weapons.
