North Korea has successfully tested a new submarine-launched ballistic missile, state media say, confirming earlier reports by South Korea, APA reports citing BBC.
North Korea's KCNA news agency said the missile had "lots of advanced control guidance technologies", and was fired from the same vessel as in a 2016 test.
It did not mention leader Kim Jong-un, suggesting he did not attend the test.
On Tuesday, South Korea's military reported an apparent weapons test in waters off Japan's coast.
North Korea has carried out a flurry of missile tests in recent weeks, including of what it said were hypersonic and long-range weapons.
Some of these tests violate strict international sanctions.
The country is specifically prohibited by the United Nations from testing ballistic missiles as well as nuclear weapons.
The UN considers ballistic missiles to be more threatening than cruise missiles because they can carry more powerful payloads, have a longer range and can fly faster.
