Kim Jong Un is “very satisfied” – North Korea is testing the missiles again

North Korea has reportedly tested two long-range strategic cruise missiles. Kim Jong Un was “very satisfied”.

North Korea continued its series of missile tests despite international protests. As reported by the state news agency KCNA, ruler Kim Jong Un witnessed the launch of two long-range cruise missiles on Wednesday. These took off from the western province of South Pyongan in the direction of the Yellow Sea and, after a flight duration of about ten seconds, hit their targets 2,000 kilometers away.

Kim Jong Un was “very satisfied” with the tests. According to the KCNA, the rocket launch was intended to test the “rapid reaction capability of the nuclear combat force”. However, experts question whether the rockets launched on Wednesday are technically capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

The North Korean military has been conducting missile tests at an unusually high frequency since the end of September. Earlier this month, Pyongyang also launched a medium-range missile over the Japanese archipelago for the first time in five years.

The tests sparked international outrage. The North Korean leader said on Monday that these were “tactical nuclear exercises” that simulated a “real war”.

UN resolutions prohibit North Korea from testing ballistic missiles of any scale, which, depending on the design, can also carry a nuclear warhead.
