The last meeting between the leaders of Japan and North Korea was in 2004, when the Japanese prime minister, Junichiro Koizumi, met Kim's late father, Kim Jong-il.

If it is confirmed as a firing of a banned ballistic missile, it will be the first such launch since the North's November 2017 test of an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Washington and Pyongyang have been at loggerheads since the collapse of a summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump in February.

Kim Jong-un has focused on weapons development since his failed summit with Donald Trump in Hanoi. A USA official confirmed the launch to ABC News.

"A short range test is Kim demanding attention, not making a statement....and likely working on improving some tactical weapon he can sell for hard cash to his Iranian and Syrian clients".
