South Korea's military said Pyongyang is preparing to test a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM), the Yonhap news agency reported.

The military detected preparations for a test this week in Sinpo, South Hamgyong Province, North Korea, Yonhap reported, citing an unnamed South Korean military source.

South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol is aware of signs and movements indicating North Korean provocations, including SLBMs, the presidential office said in a statement.

Next week, U.S. Vice President Harris will visit the region and meet with the leaders of Japan and South Korea.

A senior U.S. administration official said Friday that nuclear tests or other provocations are possible during Harris' trip to the region, but they have no predictions or statements.

The U.S. aircraft carrier arrived in South Korea Friday for the first time in about four years, joining other warships to participate in a joint exercise with South Korean forces.
