North Korea's official news agency KCNA on Friday (July 26) released still photographs of the state's leader Kim Jong Un watching a missile launch.
KCNA said the latest launch was a warning to South Korean "warmongers" to stop importing weapons and conducting joint military drills, a message that analysts said was also aimed at the United States.
Kim personally watched the test-fire of two short-range ballistic missiles on Thursday (July 25), the first since Kim met with U.S. President Donald Trump last month and agreed to revive denuclearisation talks.
The missile tests raise doubts about the revival of denuclearisation talks, which stalled after the collapse of a second summit between Kim and Trump in Hanoi in February. (Reuters)
