According to reports in North Korean state media, the missile tests were carried out on Saturday and Sunday, and the missiles covered a distance of more than 1,500 kilometers in both attempts.
Confirmation of these missile tests has not yet been received from independent international channels.
Pyongyang carried out its last major missile test last January, hours after the inauguration of new US President Joe Biden.
International sanctions are being imposed on North Korea for its ballistic missiles and nuclear program.
In the missile test news, it was reported that the distance target determined in the country’s territorial waters had been “successfully” reached in both tests.
North Korea’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs cause serious problems in its relations with the United States.
Three meetings have taken place between former President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, but these contacts have not yielded concrete results.
Attempts by the United States to communicate with North Korea are made through North Korea’s Permanent Representation to the United Nations (UN), referred to as the “New York Channel”.

PUBLISHED HIS PHOTOGRAPHERS
The latest missile tests are seen as indicating that the country’s gradual improvement in its weapons program continues.
News in Rodong Sinmun, the newspaper of the ruling Labor Party, also included photos of the new long-range ballistic missile.
North Korea’s state agency KCNA said the missile used in the last test was the product of two years of work.
In the agency’s statement, the statement was used for this new type of missile, “it is important to obtain effective deterrence against enemy forces.”
In the news that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was not involved, it was reported that the trial was being watched by Pak Jong Chon, one of the leading figures of the ruling party.
PYONGYANG IS NOT RESPONDING
This missile test also drew attention because it was carried out the day before the important meeting on nuclear disarmament. At the meeting to be held in Tokyo between the United States, South Korea and Japan, the steps to bring North Korea to the negotiating table will be discussed.
The Biden administration has announced that it is ready to use diplomatic channels with Pyongyang on nuclear disarmament. However, the White House is not making any commitment to ease the sanctions.
