S. Korea rebuts Russia's claim of no decision on 3rd rocket launch
SEOUL, Aug. 25 (Yonhap) -- South Korea on Wednesday refuted Russia's claim that the two sides have not reached any decision on a third space rocket launch after their second attempt to send a rocket into space failed in early June.

The Naro-1 space rocket blasted off from South Korea's space center off the south coast on June 10, but it blew up after reaching an altitude of about 70 kilometers. Experts from both sides have so far held three rounds of meetings by the Failure Review Board (FRB), but failed to pinpoint the cause of the failure.
