South Korea hails successful test of submarine-launched ballistic missile, after two N. Korean projectiles land off Japan

South Korea’s military successfully trialled a new submarine-launched ballistic missile in the presence of its president just hours after Pyongyang fired rockets into the sea off Japan.
On Wednesday, South Korea confirmed that its military had tested a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) near its Agency for Defence Development (ADD) in South Chungcheong Province.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in was present for the tests, which were a landmark for the country’s defense program. The president’s office said in a statement that the SLBM is expected to play a major role in the country’s self-defense.

Moon congratulated the military on the achievement, which is understood to make South Korea only the seventh nation to conduct an SLBM test-launch. The missile, developed in South Korea and delivered to the Navy on August 13, was launched from a Dosan Ahn Changho-class submarine.
