North Korean leader Kim Jong Un supervised the testing of a new kind of preplanned guiding weapon, informed by the state media of the Korean Central News Agency. Since the second US-North Korea summit held in Hanoi, ended without any resolution in February, it was the first public weapons test of North Korea.
KCNA did not explain appropriately what the weapon is, including whether it was a missile or another type of preprogrammed weapon, but the “tactical” type suggested a short-range weapon, as rivaled to the long-ranging ballistic missiles which have been seen as a potential threat to the United States.
Still, the missile has a “peculiar mode of guiding flight” and “a powerful warhead” claimed by KCNA.
Kim told, “ the completion of the development of the weapon system serves as an event of very weighty significance in increasing the combat power” of the North Korean Army according to KCNA.
Last year, Kim had also supervised a test of an unrecognized “ tactical weapon” in November, as per the information of the state media, which could shield North Korea like a “steel wall”.
In the last year, Kim had informed North Korea will proceed in the way of denuclearization and launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles because the nuclear capabilities of Pyongyang had been checked.
The news of Kim’s visit to the tactical weapon site comes after the North Korean leader overtook the North Korean Air and Anti-aircraft Force on Tuesday, as per to KCNA, probing a flight drill and conveying “ great satisfaction” at their combating readiness.
Meanwhile, satellite images published in the last week, at the main nuclear site in North Korea and it could be attached with the chemical reprocessing of radioactive material into bomb fuel, claimed by the Center for International and Strategic Studies in the United States.
