The South's military said Seoul and Washington were analyzing the details of the launch.

Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters the missile did not hit Japanese territorial seas.

A USA official told CNN the missile travelled 500 km before landing in the sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea, and that it was launched from North Pyongan province.

"Liquid fuel is like a technology from the 1960s and '70s, while solid fuel is a modern fuel for missiles", said Lee Choon Geun, an analyst from South Korea's state-funded Science and Technology Policy Institute.

The South's Yonhap news agency reported that while determinations were still being made, the missile was not believed to have been an ICBM. South Sudan's civil war began in December 2013 and roughly 3.6 million people have fled their homes or become refugees, according to the U.N. The country is Africa's largest refugee crisis and the third largest in the world, after Syria and Afghanistan.

"Independent arms control experts agree that North Korea is moving rapidly to develop an ICBM".

North Korea fired an unidentified ballistic missile into nearby seas on Sunday, drawing a joint rebuke from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and US President Donald Trump.

U.S. President Donald Trump (R) attends a joint press conference with visiting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the White House in Washington D.C., the United States, on February 13, 2017. It is likely an upgraded version of the submarine-launched missile named "Pukguksong" launched in August. That's a sufficient range to worry both Japan and South Korea, vital USA allies. In a joint statement, Abe called the test "absolutely intolerable".

Suge announced that Japan would protest the North Korean missile launch through diplomatic routes - via China. North Korea conducted its first missile test of the year Sunday morning.

Lawmakers voted to impeach South Korean President Park Geun-hye in December following mass protests over a corruption scandal.

The US just doesn't "have enough interceptors to sit and play catch with everything that North Korea can throw", Williams said. His immediate withdrawal from the TPP trade agreement upon assuming office made for a hard start in cross-Pacific relations. That would be a major step toward its stated goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile that could target the USA mainland.

The U.S., Japan and South Korea requested an urged meeting of the U.N. Security Council in response to Pyongyang's missile launch.

On New Year's Day, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un declared that the country had "entered the final stage of preparation for the test launch of intercontinental ballistic missile".
