NBC News reports at least one South Korean government official thinks the answer is yes.
A top South Korean government official announced Sunday that North Korea may launch a missile by Wednesday, at which time the North has said it cannot guarantee the safety of diplomats in the capital of Pyongyang.
The official’s warning came three days after South Korea’s government said that the North had moved at least one medium-range Musudan missile with “considerable range” to the nation’s eastern border, possibly to perform a test launch.
The New York Times notes China is urging North Korea to be prudent in all decisions along the Korean Peninsula. Bloomberg adds American officials also are telling the North Korean leaders to ratchet down the tension.
