North Korea reportedly fires artillery shells near sea border

Bishkek (AKIpress) - two Koreas South Korea's military says North Korea has fired artillery shells into an area near its maritime border, Voice of America reports.

A spokesman for the South's Joint Chiefs of Staff said dozens of shells were fired into the waters at its eastern sea border near the demilitarized zone that separates the North from the South. The shellings came a day after North Korea test-fired two ballistic missiles into waters separating Japan and the Korean peninsula.

Pyongyang has conducted a series of rocket launches and artillery shelling in recent months, despite making several peace overtures to Seoul, including a decision to participate in the Asian Games to be held in late September and early October in the South Korean city of Incheon.

The South Korea's Unification Ministry told reporters Monday that representatives for both sides will meet Thursday at the border truce village of Panmunjom to discuss the North's participation in the Games.
