North Korea has fired at least one unidentified projectile, according to the South Korean military. 

Pyongyang has repeatedly fired projectiles over the past year and bragged about developing a new strategic weapon as relations with the Trump administration have soured. 

North Korea and the U.S. failed to restart talks at the end of last year, after Washington refused to respond to Kim Jong-Un’s demand for concessions. 

President Donald Trump has sought to convince the North to give up its nuclear arsenal, banking on a personal relationship he has tried to develop with Kim as well as pressure through sanctions.
