"It looks like it's a testing series, that they want this missile fully operational. If they appear to be ballistic missiles, the president and Kim Jong Un have an understanding that Kim Jong Un is not going to launch longer-range, intercontinental-range ballistic missiles," Bolton told Fox News, APA reports citing Sputnik.

US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have an understanding that Pyongyang will not launch intercontinental missiles, White House National Security Adviser John Bolton said in an interview with Fox News on Tuesday following Pyongyang's recent missile tests.

Earlier in the day, the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said that North Korea had twice launched unidentified projectiles into the Sea of Japan.

Bolton stressed that Trump is watching North Korea's tests "very carefully."

Japanese Defence Minister Takeshi Iwaya said during a press conference that the new launches of projectiles by North Korea were "a serious threat and a significant challenge for the country."

North Korea has already conducted three short-range missile tests within less than two weeks: on 25 July, on 31 July and last Friday.
