North Korean leader Kim Jong Un supervised the test-fire of a new “tactical guided weapon.”
North Korean state media reportedly said Kim Jong Un observed the test Wednesday at the country's Academy of Defense Science, and remarked that “the development of the weapon system serves as an event of very weighty significance in increasing the combat power of the People’s Army.”
The White House said they were not aware of the report and declined to comment.
This would reportedly be North Korea's first weapons test since Trump’s second summit with Kim Jong Un ended without an agreement earlier this year.
No North Korean missile launch was detected by US, reports say. Here is an official statement from DoD: “We are aware of open source reports of a launch. We have no additional comment at this time.” -- Tom Crosson DoD spokesman.
