North Korea conducts first nuclear counterattack simulation, state media says

North Korea has carried out its first nuclear counterattack exercises to simulate its “nuclear trigger” management system, guided by leader Kim Jong-un, as a clear warning to its enemies, state news agency KCNA reported. this Tuesday (23), local time.

The Asian country fired several short-range ballistic missiles this Monday (22) towards the sea off the east coast, the South Korean military reported.

As part of tests of the national nuclear management system, called the “nuclear trigger,” its artillery forces joined the country's first exercises on Monday, in a demonstration of diverse nuclear capabilities and in protest against the “provocative and invasive” attacks from the US and South Korea, KCNA said.

Kim oversaw simulation exercises involving troop maneuvers in a nuclear counterattack posture and firing artillery with simulated nuclear warheads in case nuclear crisis warnings were issued, according to state media.

The North Korean leader highly praised the availability of the world's “best” tactical nuclear strike weapons, expressing satisfaction with the exercises, he added.

Furthermore, the reclusive state is believed to be preparing to launch another spy satellite, after successfully placing a reconnaissance satellite into orbit in November.

North Korea said last week it fired a strategic cruise missile to test a large warhead and a new anti-aircraft missile.
