North Korea launched a test flight for a new type of missile, state media outlets said Thursday.

The test on Wednesday was the first for an under-development strategic cruise missile, according to the official Korean Central News Agency. Reports named the weapon as a Pulhwasal-3-31 missile.

“The test fire had no negative effect on the security of the neighboring country and is not connected with the situation of the region,” the Voice of Korea, a national broadcaster, said in an English-language post.
