The South initially reported on Saturday that a single missile was sacked, but later issued a statement that said "several projectiles" had been launched and that they flew up to 125 miles before splashing into the sea toward the north-east.

Fox News foreign correspondent Trey Yingst says the goal of the Trump administration is to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.

North Korea's leader gave the order of firing to "increase the combat ability" of the country, the announcement said.

"I believe that Kim Jong-Un fully realises the great economic potential of North Korea and will do nothing to interfere or end it", Mr Trump posted on social media on Saturday.

This missile test is the country's first since it launched an intercontinental ballistic missile in November 2017, after which it halted testing to pursue dialogue with the US.

Update: (10:51 am) Yonhap News Agency reported that the missile identified earlier was in fact a barrage of unidentified short-range missiles.

"Our military has ramped up surveillance and vigilance in case of a further launch from North Korea", the JCS said.

Most notably, the North said last month it conducted a test of a tactical guided weapon.

President Donald Trump (R) walks with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un during a break in talks at the second US-North Korea summit at the Sofitel Legend Metropole hotel in Hanoi on February 28. Soon after that missile test, the North declared that its nuclear force was complete, after which Pyongyang extended an olive branch to the South and the United States.

In April 2018, Pyongyang announced it was halting tests of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles of various ranges in order to develop the socialist economy and improve living conditions of its citizens.

According to the South Korean Yonhap news agency, South Korea and the USA are investigating the launch.

"The firing is a warning to the US that if the USA keeps pressure and sanctions, the North will launch more powerful missiles", said Yang Moo-jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies.

"We welcome President Trump's declaration that he is ready to continue to support the negotiations process despite this provocation", the statement said. ".Unless we keep the pressure on North Korea, they are not going to change, and I am very afraid they are going to let up on this pressure".

It has since emerged that the United States demanded that North Korea surrender all its nuclear weapons, to be followed by sanctions removal.

Kim Jong Un met with President Trump twice in the past year, and more than that with Moen Jae-in.

Trump raised the issue of North Korea during a telephone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday.
