MOSCOW  - The flight path of a ballistic missile fired by North Korea on Sunday was a considerable distance from Russian territory and posed no threat to Russia, the Russian defense ministry said.

Russia's missile alert systems detected the launch at around 2330 (2000 GMT) on May 13 and tracked the missile for 23 minutes before it crushed into the Sea of Japan some 500 kilometers (310.69 miles) off the Russian coast, a ministry statement said.

A Kremlin spokesman said earlier that Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is visiting Beijing, was concerned about the missile test by North Korea.
