The United States is condemning North Korea’s firing of three ballistic missiles off its east coast during the Group of 20 economic summit in China.
The U.S. says the tests and other recent ones like it violate U.N. Security Council resolutions, and also pose a threat to aircraft and commercial ships in the region.
American officials say they’re consulting with allies on the proper response and plan to raise concerns at the U.N. The U.S. also plans to bring up the issue during the East Asia summit in Laos this week.
