Under the watchful eyes of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, North Korea says it has conducted an underwater test-firing of a submarine ballistic missile, the Korean Central News Agency reported Saturday.
The test "proved and confirmed that the ballistic missile fire from the submarine fully met the requirements of the latest military science and technology," KCNA said.
The North's state-run Rodong Sinmun newspaper published photos of a projectile rising from the surface and Kim smiling from a distance at what looked like a floating submarine.
Kim called the missile a "world-level strategic weapon" and an "eye-opening success," according to KCNA.
