The top leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong Un has again guided a test firing of a new, large-caliber multiple rocket launcher, the country’s official news agency KCNA reported Tuesday.
Kim expressed his satisfaction with the accuracy of the rockets and lauded the officials and scientists in the field of national defense and munitions for successfully producing the launching system, according to reports released by KCNA.
The rocket launcher is “of great strategic importance in remarkably increasing the capability of the KPA (Korean People’s Army) to mount a precision attack on the enemies in the southern part of Korea,” the KCNA quoted Kim as saying.
Kim was accompanied by director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA Hwang Pyong So and chief of the KPA General Staff Ri Myong Su, as well as other party and military officials. Enditem
