North Korea tests new weapons system to improve ‘tactical nukes’

SEOUL (AFP) – Kim Jong-un supervised the test-firing of a new guided weapons system to improve North Korea’s “tactical nukes”, state media said yesterday, capping days of celebrations surrounding the birthday of the country’s founding leader.

The launch was the latest in an unprecedented blitz of sanctions-busting weapons-tests this year, which included firing an intercontinental ballistic missile at full range for the first time since 2017.
