South Korea's presidential security adviser on Sunday warned North Korea could launch another missile this week. Kim Jang-soo drew the conclusion from a warning by Pyongyang to all foreign embassies to leave the country by Wednesday.
"North Korea's missile provocation could come on April 10," a presidential spokeswoman quoted Kim as saying.
But Kim added Seoul "is leaving all possibilities open and is well-prepared for any scenario." He added that there are no signs that the North is preparing for all-out war. If it did, "it will suffer many times more damage," he warned.
He said North Korea's tactic seems to be to try and grab headlines in South Korea to pressure the U.S., China or Russia to dispatch a special envoy so they listen to Pyongyang's demands.
