North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un on Wednesday watched as his country test-fired a new tactical guided weapon, state-run media reported.
The Academy of Defense Science launched the weapon, The Associated Press reported, citing the Korean Central News Agency.
The rogue regime’s leader reportedly spoke about the implication of the test-fire, saying that “the development of the weapon system serves as an event of very weighty significance in increasing the combat power of the People’s Army.”
North Korea last test-fired a ballistic missile in November 2017.
The reported test-fire comes after Kim and President Trump met earlier this year for a summit in Hanoi, Vietnam, although their talks came to an abrupt ending, reportedly over a disagreement regarding sanctions relief.
