North Korean leader Kim Jong-un supervised the artillery drill

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un oversaw a series of firing exercises by artillery units in the west of the country. On Tuesday, the local state news agency KCNA reported about it, AFP and Reuters write.

The maneuvers, according to KCNA, also included “super-large multiple rocket launchers” and came just days after South Korea and the United States concluded the annual Freedom Shield joint military exercise aimed at strengthening the deterrence potential against the DPRK.

North Korea has long condemned such exercises as preparation for an invasion of the north of the Korean Peninsula. Seoul and Washington deny this, saying that these are maneuvers of a defensive nature.

The statement comes at a time of increased tension between the DPRK and South Korea and Washington, and at the time of the visit of US Secretary of State Antony Blinken to Seoul. He attended the Summit for Democracy, a ministerial conference of representatives of about 30 countries, and then traveled to the Philippines.

Seoul is one of Washington’s most important regional allies, and the United States has approximately 27,000 troops stationed in South Korea to defend against a possible attack by the DPRK, writes AFP.

Pyongyang warned this month that both Seoul and Washington would pay a “high price” for their joint military exercises. The DPRK also fired several short-range ballistic missiles towards the Sea of ​​Japan on Monday.

This is the second launch of ballistic missiles by the DPRK this year. In the first, the isolated communist regime tested a medium-range solid-fuel ballistic missile with a hypersonic warhead on January 14. It also conducted five cruise missile tests this year.
