North Korea often responds to US-South Korean military exercises with missile tests of its own. The country’s most recent known weapons test was last Thursday’s failed second spy satellite launch. On the day the drills began, KCNA said Kim observed the test-fire of a strategic cruise missile.
Since the beginning of 2022, North Korea has conducted more than 100 weapons tests, many of which involved a nuclear-capable missile designed to strike the United States as well as other parts of the world along with the latter’s allies Korea and Japan.
