US urges N. Korea to refrain from ‘threatening’ activity, return to diplomacy


The United States urged North Korea Sunday to refrain from further “threatening” activity and engage in “serious and sustained” diplomacy, after Pyongyang fired several cruise missiles, the latest in a recent series of its weapons tests.

A State Department spokesperson made the call, noting that Pyongyang has increasingly engaged in “threatening” and “irresponsible” military activities, including missile launches.

Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said that the North launched the missiles from waters off Sinpo, a city on its east coast, on Sunday morning, four days after it test-fired what it said were strategic cruise missiles, named Pulhwasal-3-31.
