Chinese firm sold North Korea 8 military vehicles...
A Chinese firm reportedly sold North Korea transport vehicles that could be used as launch pads for long-range ballistic missiles.
The web version of Canadian news agency Kanwa Information Center reported on Wednesday that the firm provided 8 transport vehicles last year.
The agency, which specializes in China's military activities, said that Hubei Sanjiang Space Wanshan Special Vehicle Company accepted the order in 2008.
The company is a subsidiary of a major state-run enterprise and manufactures customized military vehicles.
An intercontinental ballistic missile shown off during a Pyongyang military parade in mid-April was mounted on a similar vehicle.
The editor in chief of the news agency says the vehicles were sold for commercial purposes, but suggests the firm may have known they were intended for military use.
