    The US condemned the three missile launches apparently conducted by North Korea on Monday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States strongly condemns what US Strategic Command assessed were three North Korean missile launches on Monday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at his briefing.

    "The United States strongly condemns this and North Korea’s other recent missile tests all of which violate UN Security Council resolutions explicitly prohibiting North Korea’s launches using ballistic missile technology," Earnest stated on Tuesday.
