SEOUL, Feb. 6 -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) has advanced the window of its planned long-range rocket launch to Feb. 7-14, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported Saturday.
The DPRK notified the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Saturday of its revised plan to launch a rocket to deliver an observation satellite into orbit between Feb. 7 and 14, a South Korean government official was quoted as saying.
There was no revision in the already informed trajectory, making changes only in launch schedule, the official said.
On Feb. 2, Pyongyang initially informed international organizations of a planned launch between Feb. 8 and 25.
