News

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has supervised another round of artillery exercises, the latest in a series of exercises believed aimed at boosting its fighting capability.

The Korean Central News Agency said Kim guided an artillery firing competition between army units on Thursday.

It said the competition was meant to evaluate the readiness of artillery forces and improve the form, program and method of artillery drills.

The drills were the fourth since late February. U.S.-led diplomatic efforts aimed at getting the North to give up its nuclear weapons have been stalled for months.
