South Korea and the US are to sign an agreement on extending the former’s ballistic missile range to at least 800 kilometres.

South Korea’s leading newspaper, Donga Ilbo, reports that Seoul and Washington are nearing a compromise to the final agreement. Calls for extending the missile range have been mounting since the DPRK allegedly developed a missile with a range of 1, 300 kilometres.

The South Korean government reportedly asked to increase the missile range or scrap the range-restriction agreement made with Washington. Under the current agreement, Seoul is banned from developing ballistic missiles with a range of more than 300 kilometres.
