    [h=2]N. Korea to invite foreign observers to satellite launch[/h]*North Korea will invite “experienced foreign experts on space science and technology and journalists” to observe a controversial satellite launch, the Korean Committee for Space Technology declared on Saturday. The US and other countries say the operation is a disguised missile test, but North Korea insists it is a part of their space research program. Washington warns any launch would be a grave provocation, as UN Security Council resolution 1874 bans North Korea from employing ballistic missiles for any purposes. On Friday, Pyongyang announced its plans for mid-April to send a satellite into orbit via a long-range rocket to mark the 100th anniversary of late President Kim Il-Sung’s birth.
