N. Korea readying satellite, suggesting long-range missile launch

North Korea’s space agency is building a new satellite and readying it for launch, state media said late on Monday, with any use of a long-range rocket suggesting that the secretive state has made advances developing a ballistic missile. North Korea has been expected to launch an upgraded long-range ballistic missile, which would violate international sanctions, as it prepares to celebrate the anniversary of the founding of its ruling Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) on Oct. 10. “The world will clearly see a series of satellites of Songun Korea soaring into the sky at the times and locations determined by the WPK Central Committee,” the North’s KCNA news agency said. Songun refers to North Korea’s “military first” policy.
