South Korea's President Moon Jae-in says preventing such a crisis through persistent dialogue and diplomacy will be the task that political leaders in the countries concerned must fulfil together.
It is believed that Kim Jong Un has been found in the eastern city of Wonsan amid speculation that his health is failing.
Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement it detected the three launches made from an eastern coastal town in the North’s South Hamgyong province.
North Korea said that inter-Korean talks are over, while reportedly launching at least two projectiles into the sea on Friday.
The test verified the combat effectiveness of the overall system, and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un predicted "it would be an inescapable distress to the forces becoming a fat target of the weapon", state news agency KCNA said.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's half brother Kim Jong-nam was a spy for American intelligence, the Wall Street Journal reported, saying he was in Malaysia to meet his CIA handler in February 2017.
Kim and his wife were among the elite at the premiere of the games on Monday in Pyongyang, but North Korea's leader was unhappy with the event's organisers, state media said.
Pyongyang fires "several projectiles" from its east coast, South Korea's military says, as the country appears to step up pressure against US after February's failed nuclear summit in Hanoi.
North Korea is saying that it had test-fired a new type of "tactical guided weapon," its first such test in nearly half a year. The country is also demanding the removal of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo from talks over its nuclear programme.
Prosecutors told the court they made the offer of a reduced charge after receiving representations from the Vietnamese embassy and the woman's lawyers.
Top US officials had taken issue with Trump's assertion that Daesh has been defeated, and that North Korea can be convinced to forego its nuclear weapons.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in is greeted with smiles and hugs by the North's leader Kim Jong-un ahead of a crucial summit over denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and the prospect of officially ending the 1950-53 Korean War.
