Just days ahead of n-talks with US, NKorea fires missile

Oct 02, 2019 15:49 IST

North Korea on Wednesday fired what reports claimed to be a "submarine-launched ballistic missile". A submarine-based missile capability would take the North's arsenal to a new level, allowing deployment far beyond the Korean peninsula. The test comes a day after Washington and Pyongyang announced they would resume stalled nuclear talks. Analysts say that Pyongyang frequently couples diplomatic overtures with military moves, as a way of maintaining pressure on negotiating partners.
