Seoul (AFP) – North Korean leader Kim Jong Un supervised the test-firing of a “super-large multiple rocket launcher”, state media reported Sunday — further muddying the waters for any resumption of denuclearisation talks.

Pyongyang fired what appeared to be two short-range ballistic missiles on Saturday, Seoul’s military said, the latest in a series of launches in recent weeks in protest at US-South Korean joint military exercises, which wrapped up nearly a week ago.

Kim said the “newly developed” system was a “great weapon,” and expressed “high appreciation” for the scientists who had designed and built it, the country’s official Korean Central News Agency said.
