North Korean leader Kim Jong Un claimed last week’s rocket test was “regular” and “self-defensive” Wednesday; saying the launch will not “aggravate the situation” with the United States and South Korea.
“The recent drill conducted by our army is nothing more than part of the regular military training, and it has neither targeted anyone nor led to an aggravation of the situation in the region,” said Kim’s spokesperson.
Saturday’s “drill” was the first test since the communist regime launched an intercontinental ballistic missile in November 2017. The launch prompted a global backlash that eventually led to the first meeting between Kim Jong Un and President Trump.
“Only our regular and self-defensive military drill is branded as provocative, and this is an undisguised manifestation of the attempt to press the gradual disarmament of our state and finally invade us,” the spokesperson added. “We think this is very much unpleasant and regrettable, and we sound a note of warning.”
