SEOUL, Aug 10 (Reuters) - North Korea's latest projectile appears to be a short-range ballistic missile, South Korea said on Saturday. The launch on Saturday morning was aimed at testing capabilities of North Korea's new type of short-range missile it is developing on its own, as well as protesting South Korea-U.S. joint drills this month, the South Korean presidential office said in a statement. Pyongyang fired two projectiles into the sea off its eastern coast on Saturday in its latest weapons launch following a series of missile tests in recent months. The presidential office said the chief of South Korea's national security office, the country's defense minister and head of the intelligence agency held a video conference to discuss North Korea's weapons launch.

While a North Korean deadline for the United States to soften its stand on denuclerization talks passed uneventfully over the New Year, state media and propaganda efforts have been focusing on the prospect of a long confrontation with the United States. Optimism that two years of contacts between leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump would usher in a new age, and related hopes for economic improvement after decades of deprivation, appear to have faded. Instead, the government has been hard at work in recent weeks using state media, propaganda posters, and performances to warn the public of a bumpy road ahead under U.S. and international pressure.
