[Ed. – It’s ominous news, but it would be a whole lot worse if the plan were to test tactile weapons.]
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un praised his administration after reports of a successful test firing of a “new tactical guided” weapons system.
Kim called the development of the weapon “an event of very weighty significance,” according to the Korean Central News Agency.
The KCNA reported that Un supervised the firing of the weapon.
“After watching the power of the new-type tactical guided weapon, [Kim] pointed out that our national defense scientists and workers in the field of the munitions industry performed another great work in increasing the country’s defense capabilities,” they said.
President Donald Trump has had two meetings with the North Korean leader but neither have produced a substantive agreement on the goal of “denuclearization” of the regime.
The president has touted the talks, saying that they produced a peace that no other president had been able to complete.
