"Under the leadership of Kim Jong-un, chairman of the Commission of Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the Commission on State Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and the supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, new weapons were tested," the statement said.

Earlier the UK, France, and Germany asked the UN Security Council to hold a meeting on the launch of DPRK missiles.

DPRK leader Kim Jong-un in his letter to U.S. President Donald Trump announcing his desire to hold a new meeting after the completion of the joint military exercises of the United States and South Korea.
 
Trump and Kim have met three times since last year to discuss ways to resolve a crisis over North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs, but progress has been scant on Washington’s aim of getting the North Korea leader to give up his weapons.

Trump said Kim said he was “not happy” about the missile tests, which the North Korean leader has said were a response to U.S.-South Korean military drills being held this month. Trump said he himself had “never been a fan” of the war games.
