North Korea once again tested a new ‘rocket launcher’ under the supervision of its leader Kim-Jong-un. He has given up hope of any talks on nuclear disarmament. The South Korean military said that North Korea appears to have test-fired two short-range ballistic missiles on Saturday. But North Korean media has said that the ‘Super-Large Multiple Rocket Launcher’ was tested.
North Korea has been continuously testing against joint exercises between the US and South Korea for some time. This joint exercise ended about a week ago. According to the country’s official news agency, the Korean Central News Agency, Kim said the “newly developed” system is a “big weapon” and he also praised the scientists who built it.
KCNA said, Kim also said that the country needs to continue to develop weapons “to fully deal with the ever-increasing military threats and pressure from hostile forces”. South Korea’s Rashtrapati Bhavan, the Blue House, said it would hold a meeting of the National Security Council in the wake of North Korea’s weapons test.
The launch comes after US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo targeted him. The US diplomat had said that the United States would continue to put a ‘hard’ ban on North Korea until complete nuclear disarmament.
Pyongyang then described Pompeo as ‘highly poisonous.’ North Korea fired several short-range missiles in recent weeks against a joint operation by the US and South Korean forces.
US President Donald Trump said Sunday he was not happy with North Korea’s latest missile test. However, he ignored the seriousness of the incident. Trump told reporters on the sidelines of the G-7 summit, “I am not happy about it but still not in favor of the breach of the agreement.” A large ‘multiple rocket launcher’ by North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un This statement of Trump has come after monitoring.
