North Korea has fired a ballistic missile from its capital Pyongyang that flew over Japan before plunging into the northern Pacific Ocean, in what appeared to be its longest-ever test.

The United States, Japan, and South Korea are going to call for an global embargo, which will block oil exports to North Korea, according to an August 30 report from Japanese financial newspaper Nikkei Asian Review. He served in South Korea.
There might also be a simpler reason Kim attributed Tuesday's launch to the drills.
"Diplomatic is a lot more than just the narrow slice of talking to North Korea", he said.
The problem here is that Washington won't be very interested in displaying the kind of "demeanor" that North Korea is likely to want.
