3/The Korea Herald, South Korea Thursday, June 15, 2006


The Seoul government told Pyongyang it was "gravely worried" over the communist state's move to test a long-range missile, sources said yesterday.

News reports from Japan said there were signs since early May that North Korea was preparing to test a multiple-stage Taepodong 2 missile. The intercontinental ballistic missile could reach as far as the United States.

The South Korean government reportedly sent the warning message through an unspecified channel last month upon seizing inside information of the missile test plan, the sources said.

Seoul officials view the missile test by the reclusive state to be a highly dangerous gamble at a time of elevated tension between Pyongyang and Washington and the suspended nuclear negotiations.

The South Korean government was also likely to relay the same concern to the visiting North Korean delegation currently in Gwangju attending the joint celebration marking the sixth anniversary of the inter-Korean summit in 2000.
