Seoul: The North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has said that the latest missile launch is a warning to US and South Korea, according to media reports.
The media reports on Wednesday said Kim had watched the demonstration early on Tuesday and was satisfied with the “war capacity” of the “new-type tactical guided missiles”.
It is worth mentioning that Pyongyang on Tuesday fired two projectiles which “are assumed to be short-range ballistic missiles”. The latest launch by the nuclear-armed North came after the South Korean and US militaries began mainly computer-simulated joint exercises on Monday to test Seoul’s ability to take operational control in wartime.
Pyongyang had warned that the war games would jeopardise nuclear negotiations between the United States and North Korea.
