The missile, which was launched from Panghyon, in North Pyongan province, traveled more than 930 kilometers (578 miles) according to South Korea's military, further than a May 14 missile launch that analysts described as its most successful test ever.

The ballistic missile is estimated to have reached an altitude of well over 2,500 kilometers (1,550 miles), according to a press release from Japan's Ministry of Defense. May's launch reached an altitude of around 2,100 kilometers (1,300 miles).

The projectile may have landed in Japan's Exclusive Economic Zone, which extends 200 nautical miles from its coastline, Takahiro Hirano, public affairs officer from Japan's Ministry of Defense said.

It's North Korea's 11th missile test this year and comes amid increasing frustration from US President Donald Trump about the lack of progress in curbing Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Trump quickly reacted to the launch on Twitter. "North Korea has just launched another missile. Does this guy have anything better to do with his life?" he asked, referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"Hard to believe that South Korea and Japan will put up with this much longer. Perhaps China will put a heavy move on North Korea and end this nonsense once and for all!"
