On March 22, the DPRK launched a long-range strategic cruise missile towards the Sea of Japan. According to the South Korean publication Chosun, the rocket flew 2000 km.

"According to their information, the missile's flight range was 2,000 km", - TASS reports.

The Chosun publication calls the launch of a cruise missile another provocation. According to the agency's sources in the military circles of South Korea, it is possible that the DPRK has tested a new type of long-range cruise missiles.

The alleged launch site is called the city of Hamhung in Hamgyong-Namdo province. It is also noted that Pyongyang regularly uses non-standard places as launch sites. In particular, it is reported that the launches were made from a submarine, a train, lakes, coastal cliffs, golf courses, which complicates the search for their base.

The previous launch took place on March 19. Then the DPRK launched an intercontinental ballistic missile with a range of 800 km with an imitation of a nuclear warhead. North Korea's missile launches at intervals of several days may be a response to the joint exercises of South Korea and the United States "Freedom Shield FS", which started on March 13.
