    Japan convoked an emergency meeting of the National Security Council after North Korea fired a missile on Wednesday, which presumably dropped in the Japanese exclusive economic zone in the Sea of Japan, media reported.

    TOKYO (Sputnik) — The decisions made at the meeting are not disclosed so far, Kyodo agency said.

    Earlier in the day, the South Korean military registered North Korea launching a ballistic missile presumed to be a Rodong with a range of 1000 kilometers (621 miles) from the province of Hwanghae-Namdo in the direction of the Sea of Japan.
