كوريا الشمالية تدعي إطلاق صاروخ جديد من غواصة

October 20, 2021 - قالت كوريا الشمالية إنها اختبرت صاروخاً باليستياً جديداً (SLBM) يطلق من الغواصة، وهو أول إطلاق تجربي لها منذ عامين، وتقول إنه سيعزز قدرات جيشها تحت سطح البحر

Tuesday’s launch was the highest-profile weapons test by North Korea since President Joe Biden took office in January. The Biden administration has repeatedly said it’s open to resuming nuclear diplomacy with North Korea “anywhere and at any time” without preconditions. The North has so far rebuffed such overtures, saying U.S. hostility remains unchanged.

South Korea’s military described the missile as a short-range, submarine-launched ballistic missile and said the launch was made from waters near the eastern port of Sinpo, where North Korea has a major shipyard building submarines.
