Analysts of the Washington-based Center for strategic and international studies (CSIS) studied satellite images and available information about the missile program of North Korea and concluded that strategic ballistic missiles are stored on the Sino-Ri base, according to the report on the CSIS website.
According to them, the base is located in 212 km of north of the demilitarized zone on the border of North Korea and South Korea. It has medium-range ballistic missiles Nodong-1.
The CSIS noted that, judging by the satellite images taken in December 2018, the base is active, next to it there is a school for missile defense officers. As noted by Reuters, ballistic missiles with “Sino-Ri” can reach both Japan and South Korea, and the American island of Guam in the Pacific Ocean.
In November 2018, CSIS analysts identified 13 secret missile bases of the North Korea, one of which is located in 135 km from Seoul and makes possible a quick strike on the South Korean capital.
A new publication about North Korea’s missile bases in the CSIS was made against the background of how the US President Donald Trump confirmed that he plans to meet with the head of the North Korea Kim Jong-UN soon.
