North Korea is going to launch a spy or surveillance satellite again after two failed attempts. The country has officially informed Japan about the matter.
According to Reuters information, North Korea can launch this surveillance satellite anytime between Wednesday (November 22) and December 1.
Pyongyang will try to launch a surveillance satellite for the third time this year. Japan and South Korea said they had failed in two previous attempts.
Also, according to UN rules, launching any intelligence or surveillance satellite into orbit is a violation of international sanctions.
The Japan Coast Guard said on Tuesday (November 21st) that North Korea has officially informed Tokyo that it will launch the satellite over the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea. After such information came to light, neighboring South Korea has already asked various types of vessels in the area to be cautious.
Meanwhile, North Korea’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida condemned such an attempt by Pyongyang shortly after Japan was informed of the matter. He also directed the armed forces of the country to be ready to avoid any ‘unwanted’ situation.
