TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan would continue to seek a summit with North Korea, without conditions, despite the latest missile launch by Pyongyang, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said on Wednesday.

North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles early on Wednesday, the South Korean military said, only days after it launched two other missiles intended to pressure South Korea and the United States to stop upcoming military drills.
