Experts also said that North Korea has been testing rocket engines and heat-shields for an ICBM while developing the technology to guide a missile after resume into the atmosphere following a liftoff.

Unification Ministry spokesman Jeong Joon-hee said, there were no signs of any launch preparations.

Meanwhile, U.S. elected President Donald Trump declared that North Korea's International Ballistic Missile launch test won't happen.
