Topic: South Korea expresses concern over North's submarine missile test


North Korea's recent test-firing of a ballistic missile from a submarine was "very serious and concerning", South Korea said on Monday, with one defence official suggesting Pyongyang could have a fully operational platform in two or three years. Pyongyang's official KCNA news agency said on Saturday North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un, oversaw the test-launch of the missile from an offshore location. "We urge North Korea to immediately stop developing SLBMs (submarine-launched ballistic missiles), which hinder the*stability of the Korean peninsula and Northeast Asia,"*Kim Min-seok, spokesman for South Korea's defence ministry, told reporters on Monday.
