"The Academy of Defence Science of the DPRK test-fired an anti-aircraft missile newly developed by it on September 30, aiming at confirming the practicality of operation of the launcher, radar and comprehensive battle command vehicle as well as the comprehensive combat performance of the missile," the North Korean agency informed.
As we reported earlier, on Tuesday, North Korea fired at least one unidentified shell into the Sea of Japan. The missile test in the DPRK was conducted just days after Pyongyang announced the prospect of an inter-Korean summit. It is unclear whether the projectile was fired by a ballistic missile banned by UN Security Council resolutions and how many launches were made. Three days before that, Kim Yo-jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, said that North Korea could declare a formal end to the Korean War, as proposed by South Korea. Pyongyang also said it was possible to discuss holding a joint summit on Seoul's rejection of double standards and hostility to North Korea.
