North Korea vows to continue satellite launches

"The DPRK's (North Korea) satellites for peaceful purposes will be put into space one after another," said a spokesman for the Korean Committee for Space Technology (KCST) in a statement posted on the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) website.

The statement, however, gave no specific launch date.

"We have a comprehensive state plan for space development including expansion and strengthening of space development institutions as required by latest science and technology and continued launch of working satellites needed for the country's economic development," it said.
