The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “South Korea successfully tests submarine-launched ballistic missile” – below is their description.
South Korea successfully tested a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) on Wednesday, becoming the first country without nuclear weapons to develop such a system as it aims to better counter North Korea’s growing capabilities.
Moon Jae-in, the South’s president, attended an underwater ejection test of the SLBM aboard the new 3,000 tonne class Dosan Ahn Chang-ho submarine commissioned last month, his office said.
News about the tests broke as Wang Yi, the Chinese foreign minister, visited Seoul. Asked about the cruise missile launches, he said he hoped for “peace and stability” on the Korean peninsula.
But he said that other countries were also “engaging in military activities,” adding that “we all have to work together toward the resumption of dialogue.”
Mr Wang made no direct mention of the recent joint US-South Korea military drills, although he warned against expanding the US-led Five Eyes intelligence alliance to include Seoul, denouncing the group as an “outdated” product of the Cold War era.The Telegraph YouTube Channel
