SEOUL — North Korea said on thurs­day it had suc­cess­fully test-fired a new sub­ma­rine-launched bal­lis­tic mis­sile (SLBM) from the sea to con­tain ex­ter­nal threats and bol­ster self-de­fense, ahead of fresh nu­clear talks with the United States.

the launch on Wed­nes­day was the most provoca­tive by North Korea since it re­sumed dialog with the United States in 2018 and a re­minder by Py­ongyang of the weapons ca­pa­bil­ity it has been ag­gres­sively de­vel­op­ing, in­clud­ing in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal bal­lis­tic mis­siles, an­a­lysts said.
