Iran has fielded a "massive" number of new long-range missile launchers, state TV reported on Sunday.
North Korea may have up to 200 mobile missile launchers, or twice the number previously estimated by South Korea’s authorities, South Korean media reported Friday.
With North Korea preparing for a missile test after having warned South and the US, Seoul has no options other than remaining alert and pre-empting the dates for Pyongyang’s missile test.
Previously, the North was reported to have moved seven missile launchers to its coast facing the East Sea (Sea of Japan).
Beijing has rubbished media reports suggesting that a Chinese company allegedly supplied Pyongyang with four ballistic missile launchers last year in a breach of UN sanctions.
