N Korea bestätigt Raketentest für Submarine Start

October 20, 2021 - Nordkorea bestätigte Mittwoch, dass es eine neu entwickelte ballistische Rakete von einem Submarine abgefeuert hat, der erste derartige Test in zwei Jahren, Nordkorea will damit seine militärischen Unterwasseraktivitäten stärken.

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.
