On March 10, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un visited another military unit with his 10-year-old daughter, Kim Joo-e. They watched the exercises of the gunners and witnessed the launch of the salvo of operational and tactical missiles KN-24, called the analogue of the American ATACMS. This was reported by the British online edition of The Independent, citing Korea’s Central News Agency.
According to the KCNA, during the visit, the North Korean leader ordered the Korean People’s Army to prepare more intensively for the defense of the Motherland. He stressed that the military must constantly increase their combat readiness in order to respond appropriately to any threat against their country, if necessary.
Gunnery units must be strictly trained to carry out two strategic tasks to the highest perfection through the regular establishment of various simulation exercises for real warfare: first, to deter war; and second, to take the initiative in the war
said Kim Jong Un.
The Western and Asian press specified that during the exercise, North Korean soldiers practiced an attack against an unnamed airfield in South Korea. Attention was also drawn to the equipment of the North Korean army, which does not seem at all outdated. In addition, according to information from the Joint Chiefs of Staff of South Korea, on the same day the DPRK launched a short-range ballistic missile towards the Yellow Sea from the city of Nampo.
We remind you that from March 13 to 23, the South Korean-American The Freedom Shield exercises are to be held in the region, alongside the Warrior Shield field maneuvers already underway. Thus, Pyongyang’s reaction to the environment is quite objective for geopolitics.
