North Korea notified U.N. agencies on Tuesday that it plans to launch a satellite later this month, which could advance the isolated country’s development of long-range missile technology.
Pyongyang conducted its fourth nuclear test on Jan. 6 in defiance of United Nations sanctions, and last launched a long-range rocket in December 2012, sending an object it described as a communications satellite into orbit.
Western and Asian experts have said that launch was part of an effort to build an intercontinental ballistic missile.
North Korea is under U.N. sanctions for its nuclear and missile programmes, and countries including the United States and South Korea are seeking fresh sanctions after Pyongyang’s latest nuclear test last month.
