JCS says N. Korea may have fired 1 SLBM-type missile

실무협상발표 13시간만에 SLBM추정체 발사

JCS says N. Korea may have fired 1 SLBM-type missile

 

South Koreas Joint Chiefs of Staff, JCS, said Wednesday that North Korea presumably fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) from waters off its east coast.

 

According to the JCS, the missile, believed to be a type of Pukguksong, was fired from off the east coast near Wonsan at 7:11 a.m. and flew around 450km east at a maximum altitude of about 910 km.

 

The JCS said the South Korean military is monitoring the situation in case of additional launches and are maintaining a readiness posture.  It also called on Pyongyang to stop such acts that heighten tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

 

Seouls Presidential National Security Council (NSC) convened an emergency meeting and expressed strong concern over the launch.

 

U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) also said it is aware of the launch and is continuing to monitor the situation while keeping in close consultation with their allies in the region.
