South Korean President Moon Jae-in warned North Korea on Thursday that its apparent missile launches could make the resumption of dialogue difficult.
He was speaking in a special live interview with public broadcaster KBS, hours after the North's firing of two rockets.
South Korea and the United States believe that they were "short-range missiles," based on an analysis of flight distances, according to the president, who is to mark the second anniversary of his inauguration on Friday.
Moon pointed out that the projectiles the North fired from its eastern coast last weekend flew "relatively short" distances.(Yonhap)
