NK Nears Completion of Naval Base Construction

North Korea is known to be completing the construction of a naval base near the tense Yellow Sea border.

A high-level South Korean government official said that a ground facility to store air-cushioned vessels was spotted at the naval base, which is being built in Goampo, Hwanghae Province.
He added that the construction is in the stage of completion.

South Korean military and intelligence authorities say that the hangar-shaped facility is capable of storing some 60 air-cushioned vessels at a time.

Intelligence officials predict that air-cushioned vessels will be deployed at the base by next month.

Meanwhile, the South Korean military will create a maritime military command overseeing the security of the nation’s northwestern islands in the Yellow Sea on June 15th. The command’s operational jurisdiction will include the inland regions of North Korea’s Hwanghae Province to systematically monitor and contain threats from North Korea.
