North Korea has conducted a second test related to its development of a reconnaissance satellite. According to Japan and South Korea, the test involved the launch of another ballistic missile.
Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said on 6 March that the “important test” was held one day earlier by the country's National Aerospace Development Administration and the Academy of National Defense Science.
The KCNA said the test confirmed the “reliability of the satellite data transmission/reception and control command system and various terrestrial satellite control systems”. It provided no additional details.
South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said it detected a missile launch from Sunan area of Pyongyang just before 9 am local time. It said the missile flew 270 km at a top altitude of 560 km.
韩国参谋长联席会议(JCS)表示,就在当地时间上午 9 点之前,它探测到从平壤顺南地区发射的导弹。它说导弹在560公里的最高高度飞行了270公里。
