The US authorities condemned the Saturday North Korean missile launch, noting that it did not pose any threat to the US or its allies, US Indo-Pacific Command (USINDOPACOM) said in its statement, APA reports.

"The United States condemns these actions and calls on the DPRK to refrain from further destabilizing acts. While we have assessed that this event does not pose an immediate threat to U.S. personnel, territory, or that of our allies, we will continue to monitor the situation," the statement says.

The Command added that the US "are consulting closely with the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Japan, as well as other regional allies and partners" over the launch.

Note that North Korea has conducted what is thought to be its biggest missile launch since 2017.
