S. Korea: North May Conduct Missile Test
Posted on 2020-09-16 19:12:12
North Korea may soon conduct its first underwater-launched ballistic missile
test in about a year.

A top South Korean military official says North Korea has been repairing
recent typhoon damage at its northeastern Sinpo shipyard, a place where it
builds submarines.

He says once the repairs are complete, there is a chance the North will carry
out a submarine-launched ballistic missile test.

He says South Korea's military is keeping a close watch on developments there.

In recent years, North Korea has been pushing hard to acquire the ability to
launch missiles from submarines.

Experts say this is a worrying development because such weapons are difficult
to detect before launch.

A test of an underwater-launched missile by North Korea last October was the
first of its kind in three years, and the most provocative weapons test since
North Korea entered nuclear negotiations with the U.S. in 2018.
