North Korea has pledged more space development projects to commemorate International Day of the First Human Space Flight, amid concerns over the possible launch of a military spy satellite this month.

North Korea has an “unwavering” commitment to becoming a global space power, said North Korea’s state news agency KCNA, because outer space belongs to all of humanity and is not something that is monopolized or owned by any one country.

North Korea said the country’s space development projects are progressing “vigorously” in line with the spirit of the Outer Space Treaty, which provides that a sovereign country has the right to use outer space for peaceful purposes.

The announcement comes after North Korea previously said it would complete preparations to place its first military spy satellite into orbit by April.

Last December, the secret regime released black-and-white photographs of Seoul and the port in Incheon, 27 kilometers west of the capital, which were said to have been taken from an “experimental satellite.”

Earlier this month, North Korea marked the 10th anniversary of the founding of the National Aerospace Development Administration, the government agency responsible for developing satellites.
