North Korea bolsters nuclear prowess with test of new weapons system: KCNA

North Korea has tested a new weapons system it says will boost the country’s nuclear weapons capabilities, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) local time reported Sunday morning.

The test launch was observed under the supervision of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and was commissioned by the Ministry of National Defense, according to KCNA.

“The new type of tactically-guided weapons system (…) is of great significance for greatly improving the firepower of front-line long-range artillery units and improving the efficiency of weapon operation nuclear tactics of the DPRK,” the outlet said. DPRK stands for the official name of North Korea, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

“The firing test turned out to be a success,” he added.

KCNA did not say when the last launch took place, but state media usually reports on such activities a day later, Reuters noted.

This is breaking news. It will be updated as new information becomes available.

North Korea said local time on Sunday that it had tested a new weapons system that would boost its nuclear capabilities. Here, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is seen in Hanoi on March 1, 2019.
