Pyongyang, August 7 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, watched the demonstration fire of new-type tactical guided missiles at daybreak Tuesday.

After receiving the report on the plan for demonstration fire of new-type tactical guided missiles at the observation post together with the accompanying officials, Supreme Leader of the Party, state and armed forces Kim Jong Un saw the fire.

Two tactical guided missiles launched at the operational airfield in the western area of the country flied across the sky over the capital area and the central inland region of the country to precisely hit the targeted islet in the East Sea of Korea.

The demonstration fire clearly verified the reliability, security and actual war capacity of the new-type tactical guided weapon system.

Highly appreciating that the demonstration fire was carried out satisfactorily as intended, Kim Jong Un noted that the said military action would be an occasion to send an adequate warning to the joint military drill now underway by the U.S. and south Korean authorities.

The Supreme Leader met the leading officials and scientists in the field of national defence science and workers in the field of munitions industry who successfully conducted the demonstration fire, and had a photo taken with them.

Accompanying him were Vice-Chairmen of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea Pak Pong Ju, Ri Man Gon, Pak Kwang Ho, Ri Su Yong, Kim Phyong Hae, O Su Yong, An Jong Su, Pak Thae Dok and Pak Thae Song and First Vice Department Directors of the C.C. WPK Jo Yong Won and Ri Pyong Chol and vice department directors of the C.C., WPK.

Present there were Army General Ri Yong Gil, chief of the General Staff of the Korean People's Army, and Army General Pak Jong Chon, director of the Artillery Bureau of the KPA. -0-
