MOD on alert against North Korea’s new short-range ballistic missiles

Sunday’s Sankei reported that the Ministry of Defense is on the alert against what appeared to be a new type of short-range ballistic missile displayed at a military parade held in North Korea on Thursday. The daily said the new missile, which may be an improved model of Russia’s short-range ballistic missile Iskander, may pose a greater threat to Japan as its range may have been extended to reach a wider area of Japan. The paper wrote that the ministry is collecting and analyzing information on the new missile as well as a new type of submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) that was also displayed at the parade.
