North Korea’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un has expressed “great satisfaction” to the recent super-large multiple launched rocket system that was tested on Thursday.
South Korea military reported that North Korea fired two short-range projectiles into the sea of its east coasts.
KCNA news agency said Kim was present at the latest test as he did with the past tests in August and September.
Pyongyang’s official also noted that Kim failed to attend the last one on October 31.
“The volley test-fire aimed to finally examine the combat application of the super-large multiple launch rocket system proved the military and technical superiority of the weapon system and its firm reliability,” KCNA said.
“The Supreme Leader expressed great satisfaction over the results of the test-fire.”
The test is coming in a time when the US-North Korea nuclear talks seem to be at a stalemate.
Despite warnings from the United Nations to prevent Pyongyang from firing ballistic missiles under UN Security Council resolutions.
The Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that North Korea has once again violated that warning by shooting the projectiles into the Sea of Japan, otherwise known as the East Sea.
“North Korea’s repeated launches of ballistic missiles serious defiance to not only our country but also the international community,” he told reporters in Tokyo.
Meanwhile, Kim Jong-Un has given the United States an end of the year deadline to kick-start the nuclear talks after it ended in a stalemate.
