Following the missile launch, US and Japanese officials held a phone meeting, reports suggest.
In total, Pyongyang has reportedly conducted at least seven missile tests in 2021. In September, the DPRK reported about the newest addition to its arsenal - the Hwasong-8 missile armed with a hypersonic glider vehicle.
