South Korea warns of North Korea’s satellite launch plans

North Korea plans to launch a satellite, a South Korean daily reported Tuesday.

North Korea has recently manufactured a satellite installed with camera and communication equipment and named it Kwangmyongsong-5, the JoongAng Ilbo quoted an unidentified South Korean official.

Japan's news agency quoted US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson as saying that Washington is considering a multilateral defense ministers' meeting aimed at reining in North Korea's nuclear and missile development programs. It said the meeting is likely to take place following a ministerial event in Vancouver, Canada, scheduled next month, to increase pressure on Pyongyang.
