North Korean leader Kim guides “successful” test for new rocket engine

Kim Jong Un, top leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, or DPRK, has guided a ground test for heavy-lift, solid-fuel rocket engine and its separation.

Kim emphasized that the test of the newly designed rocket engine and its separation is “of historical and strategic importance”.

These moves by Pyongyang came amid escalated tensions on the Korean Peninsula after South Korea and the United States started their joint annual war games on March 7.
