Referring to photographs posted on August 11 on 38 North, a USA website specializing in North Korea analysis, Joseph Bermudez, a North Korea specialist, claimed that they could indicate preparations for a new test of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM).

The us president, Donald Trump has maintained a high level of tension Friday on the record of north korea, asserting that the military option was "ready" against Pyongyang, which has threatened to launch an attack near the american island of Guam, a military outpost of strategic of the United States in the Pacific.

Earlier, the United States President Donald Trump had issued a warning to North Korea that the U.S. military is "locked and loaded" to deal with any provocation from Pyongyang.

But it also said that if the US and South Korea took a first strike against North Korea, China should intervene. Pyongyang on Thursday announced it was finalising a plan to fire four missiles near the USA territory of Guam.

Recent satellite photos suggests that North Korea is preparing for fresh submarine-based missile tests, an expert has said, amid heightened tension between the US and North Korea over the communist state's successful launch of an inter-continental ballistic missile.

Joseph Bermudez, an expert from the Defence of north korea and information, has posted photographs on the monitoring site "38 North" -the Institute of United States Korea of Johns Hopkins university- which, according to him, it could show the preparations for a test missile sea-to-ground ballistic missile (SLBM).

North Korea's Pukguksong-1 is an SLBM that was first successfully test-launched on August 24, 2016. The move was condemned by United States, South Korea and Japan.
