North Korea fired "two ballistic missiles" into the sea from off its east coast on Wednesday, South Korea's military said, per Yonyap news agency.

Why it matters: The launch came two days after Pyongyang claimed to have fired new long-range cruise missiles that it described as "a strategic weapon of great significance."

The big picture: North Korea appears to be stepping up its missiles program as nuclear disarmament negotiations with the U.S. that broke down in 2019 continue to stall.

  • The United Nations' International Atomic Energy Agency noted last month that North Korea appeared to have resumed operations at a key nuclear reactor that's believed to produce fuel for nuclear weapons.
