North Korea confirms missile launch and promises to strengthen nuclear weapons power

North Korea has test-fired a tactical ballistic missile equipped with a “new autonomous navigation system”, state media said on Saturday, with leader Kim Jong Un vowing to strengthen the country’s nuclear forces.

Kim oversaw Friday’s test launch in the Sea of ​​Japan on a mission to evaluate the “accuracy and reliability of the autonomous navigation system,” the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.

The launch was the latest in a series of increasingly sophisticated tests by North Korea, which has fired cruise missiles, tactical missiles and hypersonic weapons in recent months, in what the nuclear-armed, U.N.-sanctioned country says is a push to upgrade its defenses.
