    South Korea plans to build nuclear-powered submarines

    The South Korea’s military has begun reviewing a plan to build domestic nuclear-powered submarines to better counter threats from North Korean submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBM), officials said Sunday.

    That was reported by Yonhap.

    “The Navy will commission a study soon on whether South Korea can develop nuclear submarines,” a naval official said, asking not to be named.

    The move is in line with President Moon Jae-in’s willingness as he vowed during the presidential campaign to develop such weapons, saying, “We need nuclear submarines in this era.”
