DPRK adds new tank to its defense system

Pyongyang, Mar 14 (Prensa Latina) The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) showed for the first time a modern war tank during training exercises led by the general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, Kim Jong Un.

As reported today by the state news agency KCNA, the chairman of the State Affairs Committee and supreme commander of the People’s Army drove one of the new tanks, which he praised for its maneuverability and firepower.

Kim said that this model is one of the most powerful tanks in the world, as demonstrated in the simulated battle, which he personally conducted to determine the real combat capabilities of the units of this weapon.

In recent days Kim has visited military training bases and conducted several maneuvers, some of them in a real combat environment, coinciding with the U.S. and South Korea’s Freedom Shield military exercises, which will conclude today.

When they began 11 days ago, the DPRK Defense Ministry warned in a statement that they were provocative in nature and increased tensions in the area to the point that the slightest incident could lead to the outbreak of war.
