According to Reuters, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida directed his staff to gather information about the launch and prepare for any unanticipated events.

North Korea issued a series of statements last week accusing the US of flying a military jet over the area to spy on it.

Kim Yo Jong, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s sister, alleged that the US flew the spy plane over the North eight times in a single day.

“A shocking incident would occur in the long run in the 20–40-kilometer section in which US spy planes habitually intrude into the sky above North Korea’s economic water zone,” Kim Yo Jong told the Associated Press.

Despite North Korea’s warning, the US and South Korea rejected the claims.

Meanwhile, military experts say North Korea is organizing a big parade on July 27 to mark its ‘winning’ in the Korean War against the United States and South Korea.
