North Korea fires two cruise missiles off its west coast

North Korea fired two cruise missiles towards the sea off its west coast on Wednesday.
It is believed to be the first launch by the secretive country since 8 June, when it tested eight short-range ballistic missiles.
The latest launch comes as South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol called for diplomacy aimed at building sustainable peace between the rivals amid tensions over the North’s accelerating weapons program.
Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, Mr Yoon said he doesn’t desire political change in North Korea that’s brought by force and urged the North to return to dialogue aimed at exchanging denuclearisation steps for economic benefits.
