"According to their information, the missile's flight range was 2,000 km", - TASS reports.
The Chosun publication calls the launch of a cruise missile another provocation. According to the agency's sources in the military circles of South Korea, it is possible that the DPRK has tested a new type of long-range cruise missiles.
The alleged launch site is called the city of Hamhung in Hamgyong-Namdo province. It is also noted that Pyongyang regularly uses non-standard places as launch sites. In particular, it is reported that the launches were made from a submarine, a train, lakes, coastal cliffs, golf courses, which complicates the search for their base.
The previous launch took place on March 19. Then the DPRK launched an intercontinental ballistic missile with a range of 800 km with an imitation of a nuclear warhead. North Korea's missile launches at intervals of several days may be a response to the joint exercises of South Korea and the United States "Freedom Shield FS", which started on March 13.
