A report that North Korea has deployed intermediate range ballistic missiles with the capability of hitting the islands of Guam, Hawaii, in addition
80 underground tunnels have been built, since the mid-March us war on Iraq, in an attempt to hide this buildup. North Korea wants to keep its
military superiority over South Korea the report said.
North Korea is building and deploying intermediate-range ballistic missiles capable of hitting targets up to 4,000 kilometers away and has been
testing a new main engine for its long-range ballistics missiles, the Daepodong-2, the Defense Ministry said yesterday.
The North has also constructed about 80 underground tunnels to disguise its buildup since the U.S.-led war against Iraq began in mid-March last year,
the ministry said in its first confirmation of the North's buildup of missiles to hit long-range targets.
North Korea's moves were outlined to the National Assembly's Defense Committee in a report that said Pyongyang aimed to keep its military
superiority to South Korea and foster an environment to reunify the divided peninsula based on its military power.
