The United States is aware of possible short-range missile launches by the DPRK and considers it commonplace, a senior US administration official told reporters.
вЂњWe are aware of the DPRK's military activities over the weekend, which were not sanctioned by a UN Security Council resolution limiting ballistic missiles,вЂќ an administration official said.
According to him, we are talking about вЂњnormal activity on the part of the NorthвЂќ, вЂњat a low level.вЂќ
вЂњThis is a short-range system,вЂќ he said. At the same time, a representative of the administration, referring to the secrecy of the information, refused to say which launches and how many missiles were in question.
The Washington Post, citing informed sources, reported that the DPRK tested short-range missiles last week.
