Sankei front-paged the disclosure by several GOJ sources that Japan has detected signals pointing to North Korean preparations to fire a ballistic missile, quoting an unnamed senior GOJ official as saying: “There are signs. But we can’t say definitely that North Korea will launch a missile, since there were similar signals in the past.” The GOJ remains on high alert, bracing for a possible launch in the near future. Mainichi ran a similar story, quoting a GOJ source as saying: “A missile could be launched within a few days.” The daily added, however, that the signals in question may be related to seasonal training performed by the DPRK Army.
