Pyongyang: In what signals at the possibility of tensions thawing over the Korean peninsula, North Korea on Tuesday removed its missiles from the east coast launch site, reports quoted a US official.

After a month of intense and harsh rhetoric and hostile moves, this comes as an unusual soft move by the hermit kingdom, which has been angered by joint US and South Korean drills and threatened to launch missile strikes against the US and South Korea.
As per a BBC report, North Korea has moved its ready to launch Musudan missiles away from the launch site, a US defence official told a news agency.
But given the unpredictable demeanour of Pyongyang, it would be wrong to ascertain that the North will not launch missiles now, warned a National Security Council official, the report adds.
