North Korea's Kim calls for 'epochal change' in war preparations

State media reported on Wednesday ( May 15 ) that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un demanded an “epochal change” in war preparations after achieving his goal of boosting the production of weapons during his inspection of a tactical missile system.

According to experts, the nuclear-armed North may be testing and increasing production of sail rockets and artillery before sending them to Russia for use in Ukraine.

During his inspection of the tactical missile weapons system on Tuesday, Kim expressed “great satisfaction over the production results registered by the defence industrial enterprises” this year, Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA ) said in a dispatch.

Kim “particularly stressed the necessity of an epic shift in the arrangements of the KPA for battle by carrying out the munitions generation programs for 2024 without fail,” it continued.

Missile missiles being produced this year are intended for military installations in the west of the nation, according to KCNA.
