North Korea launched an unidentified ballistic missile off its eastern coast

North Korea  As confirmed by statements from South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff and Japan’s military, North Korea has launched an unidentified ballistic missile off its eastern coast, which was launched following the series of strongly worded grievances from North Korea regarding US military operations, including accusations of airspace violations by American spy planes in its economic zones and condemnation of the visit of a US nuclear-powered cruise missile submarine to South Korea.

Why it is significant?

In the recent disappointment, South Korea confirmed the recent launch of North Korea had successfully test-fired its inaugural solid-fuel intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) this year, marking a significant advancement in its missile capabilities, after its previous unsuccessful attempt to launch its first spy satellite using a new launch vehicle.  United Nations Security Council resolutions explicitly prohibit North Korea from employing ballistic missile technology, including for satellite launches, still, the North Korean government had launched the missile for long period , thus gaining the disagreement of the Western media.
