The Republic of Korea (ROK) postponed the launch of its self-developed space rocket Nuri due to technical problems, local media reported on Wednesday.

This is the third launch of Nuri, following a failed first attempt and a successful second mission last year.

"The third launch is aimed at putting a domestically developed satellite with observation missions into the target orbit," Ko Jeong-hwan, director of the Nuri rocket project at the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI), told reporters.
