North Korean leader Kim Jong-un oversaw the test of a super-large multiple rocket launcher on Saturday, August 24th, Reuters reported.

The isolated country recently fired two short-range ballistic missiles into its east coast sea, according to a statement from the country’s military. The test is the latest in a series of recent launches taking place amidst denuclearisation talks.

The North Korean leader said his country must defend itself against its opponents by developing new weapons and technologies to counter threats from other countries.
