North Korea appears to have won meaningful data from recent missile test - South Korea

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea said on Monday North Korea appeared to have secured “meaningful data” from its latest missile test on Sunday, when it launched an intermediate-range ballistic missile.

“South Korean and U.S. intelligence authorities believe North Korea has secured meaningful data in enhancing the credibility of its missile technology,” said Roh Jae-cheon, a spokesman for South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Roh said further verification was needed to determine whether the North had mastered the re-entry technology for missile warheads that it has claimed.
