SEOUL: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un supervised the launch of "a new-type of tactical guided weapon" as a "solemn warning to South Korean military warmongers," state news wire KCNA said Friday.

Kim "personally organized and guided" the firing of the "state-of-the-art weaponry system" on Thursday, KCNA said, a reference to the two short-range missiles fired into the sea.

It was Pyongyang's first missile test since an impromptu meeting between Kim and US President Donald Trump last month.
