Kim Jong Il leads test of new missile in DPRK

Pyongyang, Feb 15 (Prensa Latina) The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) successfully tested the new Padasuri-6 type missile, which will be stationed in the naval forces, the state news agency KCNA reported today.

The launch, conducted early Wednesday morning, was led by the general secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and chairman of the State Affairs Committee, Kim Jong Un.

The also supreme commander of the People’s Army was satisfied with the performance of the projectiles, which after flying for more than 1,400 seconds hit a ship anchored in the East Sea of Korea, the media reported.

Kim ordered to reinforce military readiness, mainly in the waters north of the Yonphyong and Paekryong islands, where South Korean warships and speedboats have frequently made incursions.

The leader warned that if the enemy violates the national maritime borders, Pyongyang will consider it a violation of its sovereignty and an act of military provocation.

The People’s Army has an unshakable will to defend the sovereignty and security of the state and will steadily build up its military might for this purpose, he stressed.
