Missile launches are warning to US, South Korea: North Korea leader

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said that his country's latest launch of tactical guided missiles was a warning to the US and South Korea over their joint military drills, state media KCNA reported on Wednesday.

Tuesday's missile launch, the North's fourth in less than two weeks, came amid stalled denuclearization talks with Washington and the US-South Korea military exercises. The new-type tactical guided missiles, launched from the western area of North Korea, flew across the peninsula to precisely hit the targeted islet in the sea off the North's east coast, KCNA said, adding that the launches clearly verified the reliability, security and actual war capacity of the weapon.
