North Korea fired a ballistic missile off its east coast shortly after Joe Biden departed Tokyo, Japan, Reuters reported.
Joe Biden on Sunday held a meeting with the press after arriving in Tokyo, Japan.
Biden kicked off the second leg of his Asia tour in Tokyo after spending two days in South Korea.
Biden said he’s not concerned about what North Korea is doing in relation to long-range missile testing while he’s visiting the region.
“We are prepared for anything North Korea does because we’ve thought through how we’d respond to whatever they do and so I’m not concerned if that’s what you’re suggesting,” Biden said to reporters.
When asked what message he had for Kim Jong Un, Biden said, “Hello. Period.”
