North Korea May Test Another Missile

MANILA — Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said Monday that North Korea may be preparing to launch another long-range missile that would be theoretically capable of reaching Alaska and Hawaii as well as American military targets in Japan and Guam.

But North Korea’s two most recent launchings of long-range missiles, including one in April, were failures, and Mr. Gates spoke with little sense of urgency.

“We have seen some signs that they may be doing something with another Taepodong-2 missile, but at this point it’s not clear what they’re going to do,” Mr. Gates said, referring to North Korea’s intercontinental ballistic missile. He made his remarks during a joint news conference in Manila with Gilberto C. Teodoro Jr., the Philippine secretary of national defense.
