This is reported by the agency "Yonhap" with reference to the South Korean military.

It is noted that the missile was launched against the backdrop of recent reports that the DPRK is preparing to launch a submarine ballistic missile (SLBM).

In August, North Korea launched two missiles into the Yellow Sea.

The leader of the country, Kim Jong-un, spoke about the serious risks to the security of the DPRK and called for further strengthening of the country's defense capability.
