U.S. Tigh-tlipped on Possible N. Korean Missile Launch

Posted: Nov 28, 2012


The U.S. government remained guarded Tuesday about multiple reports that North Korea appears to be working toward another ballistic missile test.

The U.S. attitude marks a contrast with continued intelligence leaks by South Korean and Japanese officials on Pyongyang’s missile activities.

“I’m obviously not going to comment on intelligence issues,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said at a press briefing. “I’m talking about any intelligence we might have about any DPRK intentions.”

DPRK stands for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, North Korea’s official name.

Nuland went on to emphasize that Pyongyang is banned from any activity tied to ballistic missile launches under UN Security Council resolutions.

“We would, of course, again take this opportunity to remind the DPRK of the UN Security Council statement of April, which explicitly demanded that the DPRK not proceed with any further launches using ballistic missile technology,” she said.
