North Korea’s Kim watches cruise missile launches


KCNA did not say when the missile launches took place, and a state media photo showed Kim watching the missile launch from another location, not on the patrol boat. KCNA’s use of the word “strategic” in reference to the weapons tested implied that they had been developed to carry nuclear warheads.

Kim said he would step up efforts to build powerful warships and upgrade shipboard and submarine weapon systems for the Northern Navy. He called on the country’s sailors to build “overwhelming ideological and spiritual strength”, saying this is more important than numerical or technical superiority in weapons, according to KCNA.

North Korea was expected to resume weapons testing in reaction to the U.S.-South Korea’s summer military training which began Monday for 11 days.

Ulchi Freedom Shield training is a computer-simulated command post exercise. The US and South Korean armies have also said they also plan to conduct large-scale field exercises.

North Korea has criticized major U.S.-South Korean drills as invasion practice and responded to them with missile tests. US and South Korean officials maintain the drills are defensive in nature and have no intention of attacking the North.
