North Korea tested a new system of high-caliber multiple remote control rocket launchers in its most recent test on Wednesday, which was overseen by the country's leader, Kim Jong-un, state news agency KCNA reported today.
The test "verified the combat effectiveness of the system," which, according to the aforementioned media, "will play a leading role in the military operations on land, in a short period of time, in accordance with the strategic artillery modernization policy" of the country, established by the North Korean regime.
KCNA also revealed that the test was supervised by Kim, who after knowing the result said that the system would be "an unavoidable nuisance" for the forces that become their target.
In the ballistic test on Wednesday, North Korea launched two short-range ballistic missiles from an area near Wonsan, on the east coast of the country.
The missiles fell into the Sea of Japan (called the East Sea in the two Koreas) after traveling about 250 kilometers.
The test yesterday was similar to the one that the country carried out last week and came a few days before the military maneuvers of Seoul and Washington begin, to which Pionyang opposes.
The recent North Korean arms tests, the first since the meeting between Kim and the president of the United States, Donald Trump, on June 30 at the inter-Korean border, threaten to intensify the tension in the region, while negotiations for the denuclearization of the regime continue stagnant
The Trump Administration has downgraded the importance of the evidence, which could be an attempt by the North Korean regime to reaffirm its position in the face of the likely restart of negotiations for the two countries, for which there is no definite date yet.
