SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un observed the successful test of an unspecified “newly developed ultramodern tactical weapon,” state media reported Friday, in an apparent bid to apply pressures on the United States and South Korea amid a stalemated nuclear diplomacy.

It didn’t appear to be a nuclear device or a long-range missiles targeting the mainland U.S., a string of which last year had many fearing war before the North turned to engagement and diplomacy early this year. Still, any mention of weapons testing could influence the direction of currently stalled diplomacy between Washington and Pyongyang that’s meant to rid the North of its nuclear weapons.

“It’s a North Korea-style coercive diplomacy. North Korea is saying ’if you don’t listen to us, you will face political burdens,” said analyst Shin Beomchul of Seoul’s Asan Institute for Policy Studies.

The article goes on to state the following:

Shin said the weapon North Korea tested could be a missile, artillery, an anti-air gun, a drone or other high-tech conventional weapons systems. Yang Wook, a Seoul-based military expert, said a “tactical weapon” in North Korea refers to “a weapon aimed at striking South Korea including U.S. military bases” in the South so that the North may have tested a short-range missile or a multiple rocket launch system.

  1. Kim is no fool, he knows President Trump is tough, but sees that the democrats and some Republicans are fighting against him. With Kim seeing this he knows they will stop President Trump from taking necessary action against him. He knows the democrats and some Republicans, are weak and won’t do a dam thing to stop him. This test is just a test to test the U.S. watch and see all the criticism and the, we told you so, come from the left, and every MSM outlet, but what you won’t see is any ideas or help from them.
