Ex­perts warn of grow­ing mis­sile base in N. Korea

The Island Packet - - News -

North Korea is ex­pand­ing an im­por­tant mis­sile base that would be one of the most likely sites for de­ploy­ing in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal bal­lis­tic mis­siles ca­pa­ble of reach­ing the United States, two ex­perts said Thurs­day, cit­ing new re­search based on satel­lite im­agery.

Ac­tiv­ity at the Yeong­jeo-dong mis­sile base near North Korea’s bor­der with China and the ex­pan­sion of a new sus­pected mis­sile fa­cil­ity seven miles away in­di­cate that North Korea is im­prov­ing its mis­sile ca­pa­bil­i­ties, said Jef­frey Lewis and David Sch­mer­ler of the Mid­dle­bury In­sti­tute of In­ter­na­tional Stud­ies at Mon­terey in Cal­i­for­nia.
