South Korea’s Navy says it has launched a third submarine capable of firing ballistic missiles.
It says the locally made submarine will boost the country’s underwater defence capabilities. It launched its first such submarine in 2021 and the second last November. Meanwhile the DPRK test-fired a missile into the sea of its east coast. It accused Washington and SEOUL of double standards on weapons and urged them to resume talks.
The Japanese government will more than ever heighten alert and surveillance in any case. They are currently analyzing the situation for launch. They are looking into the situation and intention regarding North Korea’s missile launch. Also the South Korean defence ministry finds it regrettable that North Korea fired a missile during the time when the stabilization of the Korean peninsula is critical.
