MOSCOW, April 6. /TASS/. South Korea has successfully test-launched a long-range ballistic missile, Yonhap News Agency said on Thursday.
"There was a test firing recently of a Hyunmoo-type ballistic missile with a range of 800km at the Anheung test site of the Agency for Defense Development (ADD) under the wing of the Defense Ministry," the agency quoted a well-informed source. "It's assessed that it was successful."
According to Yonhap, the new missile is capable of delivering strikes at any targets in North Korea. The test was conducted in the presence of Minister of National Defense Han Min-koo.
North Korea on Wednesday carried out the launch of an intermediate range ballistic missile Pukguksong-2. The missile flew about 60 kilometers and reached an altitude of 189 kilometers. South Korean military specialists believe the purpose was to further improve ballistic technologies. The launch was timed for the forthcoming visit of China’s leader to the United States.
Two weeks ago North Korea’s attempt to launch a ballistic missile ended in failure. UN Security Council resolutions prohibit Pyongyang from conducting such activities.
