North Korea carried out super-large multiple rocket launcher test on Tuesday: KCNA

SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un oversaw the testing of a super-large multiple rocket launcher on Tuesday, North Korean state media KCNA said on Wednesday.

North Korea fired a new round of short-range projectiles on Tuesday, South Korean officials said, only hours after it signaled a new willingness to resume stalled denuclearization talks with the United States in late September.

Kim, who had guided the testing of the same multiple rocket launcher before, said its capabilities have been “finally verified in terms of combat operation,” and what remains to be done with the rocket launcher is a “running fire test,” KCNA said, without elaborating on what the test would entail.

Kim ordered future tasks and ways to “steadily” attain cutting-edge national defense to officials that had joined him, including senior officials such as his sister Kim Yo Jong, KCNA said.

4. I don't think so

Not in South Korea anyway. I watch their media every day. The big media story is the nomination of the new justice minister Cho Guk who's family is allegedly influence peddling to get the daughter into medical school. Maybe arch conservative Channel A news cares.

For Abe it's just what he needs to carry out his plans to amend Article 9 restricting military activities and to "make Japan great again."
