PANMUNJOM, South Korea, Sept 29 (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris said on Thursday North Korea's recent missile test was destabilising as she visited the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) separating the two Koreas a day after the reclusive North's test launch of two short-range ballistic missiles off its east coast.

Harris said she discussed the test launch with South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol who she met with after arriving in Seoul early on Thursday amid simmering tensions in the region over North Korea's missile launches and China's actions in the Taiwan Strait.
