MOSCOW, December 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia is not worried over North Korea’s launch of a satellite “unless its booster vehicle flies towards Russia,” head of the Kremlin administration Sergei Ivanov said on Sunday.
Overnight to Sunday, North Korea’s Central News Agency said that the launch of a long-range missile that was to orbit a “working satellite” in the period from December 10 to 22 might be postponed. No reasons for the possible delay were provided.
Earlier, Pyongyang said it was planning to launch an Unnha-3 missile to orbit a polar-orbiting earth observation satellite. Washington, Seoul, and Tokyo said that this way Pyongyang was planning to test an intercontinental ballistic missile, which is banned by the United Nations Security Council resolutions. The missile is already in a standby regime at the Sohae Space Centre in Cholsan County, North Phyongan Province.
In April 2012, North Korea made an abortive attempt to launch this missile with a satellite. The missile fell into pieces in the air several minutes after the launch. Its fragments fell down into the Yellow Sea near South Korea.
