North Korea on Tuesday fired projectiles into the waters between the Korean Peninsula and Japan for the fourth time in the last two weeks.

South Korea’s defense ministry said in a statement that the unidentified projectiles were flown from North Korea’s South Hwanghae province.

North Korea’s foreign ministry separately again denounced U.S.-South Korean joint military exercises that kicked off Monday, calling them an “undisguised denial and a flagrant violation” of the agreement reached during last year’s meeting in Singapore between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump.

U.S. and South Korea “do not have political will at all” to improve relations, the North Korean foreign ministry said in a statement via the official Korean Central News Agency. “The prevailing situation is dramatically dampening down our desire for implementing the DPRK-U.S. agreements and the inter-Korean agreements, which also affects the prospect of future dialogue.”
