The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) fired an unspecified ballistic missile toward the East Sea on Sunday, Yonhap News Agency reported, citing the military of the Republic of Korea (ROK).

The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) announced the launch, the seventh such provocation in two weeks, without providing other details.

The Republic of Korea and the U.S. concluded a two-day exercise involving the nuclear-powered USS Ronald Reagan carrier on Saturday, following their trilateral drills with Japan on Thursday.

The DPRK's National Aviation Administration (NAA) said Pyongyang's missile test is "self-defensive" against what it sees as U.S. military threats.
