North Korea has fired an unidentified missile eastward from Pyongyang first time after the United Nations Security Council imposed fresh sanction on the nation.
The missile likely reached altitude of 770 km, flew 3,700 km, Yonhap reported quoting South Korean military.
"North Korea fired an unidentified missile from near Sunan, Pyongyang, around 6:57 a.m. which flew over Japan to the North Pacific," the Joint Chiefs of Staff was quoted as saying Friday.
The South's presidential office Cheong Wa Dae immediately convened a National Security Council meeting, as the country's troops conducted a ballistic missile training in the East Sea in response to the North's latest provocation.
Japan's NHK broadcaster reported that the North seems to have fired the missile toward the northeastern region of Japan.
Late last month, the North lobbed a Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missile over the island nation.
