Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)


Chunggang-up

According to Im Young-sun, a defector from North Korea and former leader of guard platoon in the Military Construction Bureau of the People's Armed Forces Ministry, North Korea has deployed missiles at a missile base in Chungganjin [also known as Chung-kang-chin or Chunggang-up] Huchang County, Jagang Province, which was started in 1990 and completed in 1995. This base is targeted at Okinawa.

The description and location of this facility are quite similiar to the "Yongjo-ri" and they may be one and the same.
