WORLD War Three fears are mounting after North Korea fired yet another missile on Thursday as the rogue state ramps up its weapons testing.
The renegade regime fired a "newly developed" anti-aircraft missile in its fourth round of weapons tests this month, according to state media.
The Korean Central News Agency said Thursday's missile launch was of "very practical significance in studying and developing various prospective anti-aircraft missile system".
It was North Korea's second known weapons test this week after it fired a previously unseen hypersonic missile on Tuesday.
Tuesday's launch was of "great strategic significance", state media said.
It comes as North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said he was willing to restore communication with South Korea in the coming days to help promote peace in the region.
The flurry of missile tests has shown the world how North Korea has been steadily developing increasingly sophisticated weapons.
The Academy of Defence Science, a military weapons developer, said Thursday's launch was aimed at testing the missile's launcher, radar, comprehensive battle command vehicle and combat performance.
