Chances N. Korea has missile reentry technology “low”: S. Korean JCS

Seoul's MOU declines to publicly comment on N. Korean intent ahead of sanctions talks at UN tomorrow

The South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said on Monday that it’s unlikely that North Korea has developed the technology for atmospheric missile re-entry and that additional verification is required before Seoul can confirm DPRK state media’s claims about its Sunday missile test.

North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said on Monday that the country had successfully test-fired a “ground-to-ground medium long-range strategic ballistic rocket” – named the Hwasong-12 – on Sunday.
