North Korean leader Kim Jong Un oversaw the test-firing of a \u201cnew-type tactical guided weapon,\u201d state media reported, in a likely signal of displeasure over stalled nuclear talks with U.S. President Donald Trump. Kim personally supervised the demonstration conducted by the Academy of Defence Science on Wednesday, the official Korean Central News Agency said. The report was vague about the nature of the weapon, saying only that the \u201cpeculiar mode of guiding flight and the load of a powerful warhead were perfectly verified at the test-fire conducted in various modes of firing at different targets.\u201d While the description suggests the weapon wasn\u2019t a nuclear device or intercontinental ballistic missile, the test sends a pointed message to the U.S. and its allies in Seoul about the risk of allowing talks to fall apart. Trump has long defended his decision to hold two high-profile summits with Kim by citing Kim\u2019s decision to halt nuclear and ICBM tests. A White House official, who asked not to be identified, said the administration was aware of the report and declined further comment. Still, the lack of details made it hard to assess how the test would impact on ongoing nuclear talks. References to the weapon as \u201ctactical\u201d - as opposed to \u201cstrategic\u201d - would seem to exclude an ICBM. Earlier Test In an event in November with similar overtones, Kim oversaw the test of what KCNA said was an \u201cadvanced tactical\u201d weapon. While the move sent ripples through diplomatic circles at the time, it didn\u2019t scuttle the negotiations and weeks later Trump announced plans for second summit. Trump last week rejected a call for confidence-building joint economic projects between Seoul and Pyongyang, and his national security adviser said Wednesday that the U.S. would need to see more evidence that Kim was ready to give up nuclear weapons before scheduling a third summit. \u201cThe president is fully prepared to have a third summit if he can get a real deal,\u201d U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton said in an interview Wednesday with Bloomberg News. The White House would need to see \u201ca real indication from North Korea that they\u2019ve made the strategic decision to give up nuclear weapons.\u201d The White House\u2019s skeptical tone comes after Trump walked out of the Feb. 28 summit with Kim, saying the North Korean leader was seeking significant sanctions relief without indicating a willingness to fully dismantle his nuclear program. Kim has escalated his rhetoric since the summit, urging top ruling party members last week to deal a \u201csevere blow to hostile foreign forces\u201d by resisting sanctions. The North\u2019s official media said earlier this week that Kim made an unannounced visit to the country\u2019s air force and oversaw air defense training. Kim said the latest weapons test \u201cserves as an event of very weighty significance in increasing the combat power of the People\u2019s Army,\u201d the KCNA report said Thursday. Russia said earlier this week it is preparing for Kim to meet with President Vladimir Putin, setting the stage for consultations between the long-time allies after Kim\u2019s nuclear talks with the U.S. broke down.
